Postdoctoral Research Associate
I completed my PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol in 2017. I started working as a postdoctoral research associate in Masud Husain’s lab in 2018. I am interested in understanding the roles of attention and decision making in retrieval from visual working memory. In my recent research, I have been using behavioural experiments and computational modelling to understand spatial feature binding – how we use spatial information to inform recognition decisions (e.g., was this object old or new?). Currently, I am investing how encoding demands, such as distraction, influence subsequent memory retrieval.
