My research program broadly aims to understand both memory and how we think about our memory (metacognition).
Within this domain, I have focused on exploring these capacities across environments featuring either semantically related or unrelated information.

How might semantic relatedness influence how we remember and how we think we remember?
The answers to these questions can provide valuable insights, given that we live most of our day-to-day lives in environments that are rich in semantic connections.
