About me

I am an experimental psychologist who specializes in learning, memory, and other aspects of human cognition. I teach at Earlham because of the emphasis on high-quality teaching and personalized mentoring, which are core principles of my own teaching and mentoring philosophy. 

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

Scholarly interest

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).

Research projects

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.
