I'm a Cognitive Psychology Ph.D. student at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, where I received my M.A. in 2011. I research human memory, with an emphasis on false memory as well as the application of cognitive psychology principles to human learning, memory, and education. I received my B.S. from the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.
