I study Prospective Memory, which is the ability to remember to fulfill an intention in the future (e.g., taking medication). I am also interested in practicing and conducting research on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

I am currently exploring why individuals mistakenly fulfill prospective memory tasks, such as taking medication twice by mistake. This mistake could be life threatening in certain situations, such as failing to withhold taking blood-thinners before surgery. Several investigators, including myself, have failed to effectively help people to stop or diminish making this type of error. My hope is that my students and I find a solution to this problem.

I chose Earlham because of the emphasis on high-quality teaching and personalized mentoring, which are core principles of my own teaching and mentoring philosophy. 

I am very new to Earlham, so it is too early for me to accurately describe students. My first impression is that they are welcoming, curious, and excited individuals who mean business and are eager to learn!

When I am not an academic, I play piano, listen to progressive rock concept albums, and take my dog “Spot” out for walks.
