About me

My research consists of examining the construct of executive function. My primary interest is examining executive function performance in typical and atypical aging. I am interested in improving the psychometric properties of tests of executive function. Other research interests involve how executive function measures relate to real-world activities such as driving and decision making. Additional interests include social robotics and work on teaching and learning. I am an active member of the Psychological Sciences Research Group.
