I am focused on metacognition and knowledge monitoring. My current research involves university students’ ability to monitor their own knowledge, and seeks to find ways to improve and understand this type of metacognition. I also seek to use this information to improve student’s performance in the classroom. I am also interested in age related memory changes, and various issues surrounding subjective age ratings in older and younger adults.
