Research Interests

I have broad research interests in metacognition (thinking about one's cognition), including metamemory and metacomprehension, and cognitive aging. I work to identify the cues on which metacognitive judgments are based, evaluate the reliability of these cues, and understand individual differences (including aging) in metacognitive judgment accuracy.
