My research on memory 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
