Current Research

My work focuses primarily on normal and abnormal memory and cognition (e.g., associative memory, semantic memory, implicit memory, prospective memory), particularly in older adults. I work with colleagues at Baycrest Centre on the effects of memory changes in everyday life. Another line of research examines cognition in cancer patients.
