My research is guided by an interest in human memory and, specifically, the ability to successfully remember a postponed intention. For example, if you need to remember to turn off a cell phone before a meeting, what factors determine if you will succeed in remembering this intention? I seek to better understand how we can maintain competing motives such as attending to an ongoing conversation while maintaining in mind an intention to carry out a future action and how these motives compete for attention and shape people’s judgments, choices, and behaviors. Recently, I've become interested in the psychology of film, and in particular the way movies drive our sensory, conceptual, and emotional processes.
