My research program focuses on understanding technologically-driven biases that can impair metacognitive monitoring (i.e., knowing what you know) and decision-making. By studying human-computer interactions in the context of memory and cognition, a major goal of my research involves thinking about ways to conceptualize and study digitally-mediated cognitive processes and behaviors in increasingly complex media environments.
