Research: 

My primary research interests include: (1) psychology and law; and (2) memory.

With regard to psychology and law my research focuses on investigating the impact of witness memory in the courtroom. In most of my studies I have studied child witnesses in court, but have now extended my study to include elders as witnesses. These studies have included various court contexts and type of evidence: repressed memory, DNA evidence, hearsay testimony, demeanor of witnesses, type of crime disclosure, type of crime, and the impact of courtroom experts.

With regard to memory, my research is centered on understanding the effect of instructions to forget on memory. This phenomena is typically referred to as directed or intentional forgetting. My research has looked at the effectiveness of these instructions in both cognitive and social contexts. In addition, I have examined how information is represented in memory following these cues, and the mechanisms that lead to intentional forgetting.
