I’m a cognitive psychologist. Most of my research explores human memory. I am especially interested in determinants of the subjective experience of remembering, source monitoring (the inferential processes by which people identify the origins of mental events such as memories), and the application of theories concerning these processes to everyday memory phenomena (e.g., eyewitness evidence). I collaborate with several terrific psychologists, and I have had the great pleasure of working with many wonderful students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Check out my Google Scholar profile.

I acknowledge and respect the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose traditional territory the university stands, and the Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.  I strive to make my lab a safe and welcoming place for students of diverse backgrounds, genders, and abilities.  Racism is wrong.

The UVic public relations people made a little video of me talking about my work, which you can view  Here .

I am a member and keen supporter of the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science. 

My preferred honorific is “Professor.”   My pronouns are he/him/his..
