Summary of Expertise


Research Interests

I am interested in the ways humans form, maintain, communicate, and confabulate representations of the past and future. I'm currently investigating how misinformation propagates across social networks and the role of anticipation in predicting consistency of Flashbulb memories.

Biography, Education and Training

Spoiler Alert: I'm a cognitive psychology graduate student. I was born and bred in Los Angeles, CA. I attended the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) & the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for my undergraduate studies in Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology, and Cognitive Science. I'm super excited to be at UC Santa Cruz... and I cannot believe I get to work alongside you in the pursuit of knowledge. I have a website where there is a whole lot more about me, my interests, teaching, and what I study (it's under Website and here).
