I use a variety of methodologies to study long-term memory formation, modification, and consolidation in humans. These methods include fMRI, EEG, eye-tracking, and studies with epileptic patients who have received unilateral temporal lobe resections. I am mainly interested in hippocampal-dependent memory, with a focus on binding (linking two arbitrary pieces of information together so that they may be remembered later). Recently, I have begun to investigate the factors that determine which aspects of memory will be bound to any features of the environment at any given moment.

When I'm not busy researching the brain, you can probably find me working on one of my other hobbies. I am an aspiring yogi, beer connoisseur & nano-brewmaster, and vinyl record collector.
