My current research explores the growth of immediate memory capacity across age, and capacity in young adults. I'm interested in testing immediate memory performance in participants at different ages using different classes of stimuli to show that memory spans for different stimulus classes improve similarly. My current work suggests that chunking abilities do not improve with age, and that improvements in immediate memory instead reflect a true increase in the number of chunks available for encoding materials. Current findings also suggest that chunking is a core ability in children, and that differences in immediate memory span for materials from different stimulus classes are robust across development. If you want to join the team, some opportunities are listed occasionally in the Research Interests menu under the Research grants section. Feel free to contact me !
