Research Interests


Many of the decisions we make in daily life are influenced by memory retrieval and by our evaluation of our subjective experiences. My research aims to clarify how encoding and retrieval factors shape memory accuracy, and how task and context factors shape subjective memory and aesthetic experiences.

Note: I am on Research and Scholarship Leave, and am an Honourary Visiting Scholar at Flinders University for 2017.
