MEMORY

I am interested in how we learn and remember events. In particular, I examine ways how to improve our memory performance in terms of various learning techniques (e.g., retrieval practice, motor enactment, verbal production).

METACOGNITION

I am interested in how we monitor and control our learning (i.e., metacognition). In particular, I examine how far learners can appreciate the related mnemonic benefits.

MULTITASKING

In our everyday life, we need to plan, coordinate, and monitor multiple activities at the same time. With advancing technology, new forms of media (e.g., smart phones, WhatsApp) constantly evolve that multiply the demands to communicate and to work simultaneously. I am particularly interested in understanding the individual/age-related differences and components of this distinct human capacity to multi-task .

APPLICATION TO EDUCATIONAL CONTEXTS

Currently, I plan to translate and evaluate experimental findings on memory and metacognition to educational materials (e.g., data graphs) and educational settings (e.g., psychology courses).
