Personal profile


I am a lecturer in the School of Psychological Science. I completed my PhD in Psychology at UNSW Sydney with Steve Most and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California with Mara Mather.

Research interests

Our attention and memory are limited resources even though it often feels that we are aware of everything and that we remember events exactly as they happened. I am fascinated with the way our attention and memory operate, and the way that some information - especially emotional information - tends to be attended and remembered with greater priority than other information. In my research, I use behavioral, eyetracking, and neuroimaging techniques to explore interactions between emotion and cognition. I'm also interested in way that individual differences - including age - can change the way people attend and remember emotional information.
