RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am interested in the role that attention plays in modulating the contribution that memory retrieval makes to the response selection process. I have used negative priming and inhibition of return tasks to investigate how changing the attentional demands of tasks can influence the extent to which memory retrieval can be a reliable source of information in the response selection process.
