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 and in neurodegenerative disease. My students and I work with colleagues at Baycrest Centre on the effects of memory changes in everyday life. We are currently evaluating the benefits of an online psychoeducational memory and aging intervention program.
