I'm an associate professor in Educational Psychology at the University of Arizona. After graduating from Dartmouth College with undergraduate degrees in psychology and physics, I earned a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Notre Dame. I taught high school chemistry and physics for two years. Then I earned my PhD in cognitive psychology from the University of Illinois. I currently study how learning environments can prompt learners to capitalize on the innate strengths of memory, compensate for weaknesses of memory, and increase the efficiency of learning.
