Research Interests:
My research answers questions about memory and cognition in nonhuman primates. Specifically, I focus on memory awareness, recollection, rehearsal, and other types of cognitive control. My goal is to help determine the structure of nonhuman primate memory, to identify circumstances under which nonhuman primates do and do not exert top-down control over their cognition, and to identify the brain areas that are necessary to support these cognitive processes.
