ph.d student in clinical psychology
I am currently looking at the neuropsychological factors contributing to how individuals solve problems in the real world. I am particularly interested in how hippocampus-dependent memory processes relate to problem solving ability in normal aging and aging-related memory disorders.
M.A. Student in Exp. Psychology
I am currently looking at the cognitive and neural mechanisms that support different ways of remembering, focusing on the structures in the medial temporal lobe. I am also interested in how spatial information can alter the way we perceive and remember.
Ph.D. Student Collaborator (supervised by dr. caroline palmer)
I am currently collaborating on a project with Dr. Signy Sheldon and Dr. Caroline Palmer that investigates how individual differences influence sensory details recalled from complex events. Specifically, we are interested in how the types of sensory details recalled change with changes in imagery ability and musical training.
Visiting researcher (previously supervised by dr. Elisa ciaramelli)
I recently graduated with a Master's Degree in Neuroscience from University of Bologna and I'm currently doing a research internship at Sheldon Memory Lab. I’m interested in the functions of remembering and forgetting. I’m currently looking at the benefits and drawbacks of recollecting details from learned events for concept generalization.
I am an Honours undergraduate student interested in studying the interaction between emotion and memory in autobiographical memory and understanding the underlying computations of this interaction.
I am an Honours student interested in studying the influence of affect on memory formation and how this affects subsequent memory recall, as revealed by monitored eye-movements.
I am a research assistant in the lab. I am primarily interested in the link between memory and social functions and learning about how this link is supported by the brain. To do so, I use brain stimulation techniques.
I am an Honours undergraduate student investigating the relationship between episodic memory and empathy.
I am an undergraduate Psychology student, interested in the individual differences in imagery. I'm running a study investigating how imagery capabilities support the mental construction of scenes and events.
I am currently completing an independent research project after having recently finished my B.Sc. in psychology. My research investigates the role of musical expertise in the recollection of sensory details from complex events.
I am an undergraduate Psychology student volunteering in the lab. I am interested in how autobiographical memory functions and what can impact it.
I am completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology. I am interested in how autobiographical memory retrieval is affected by aging.
I am an undergraduate Cognitive Psychology and Anthropology student. My research interests include the investigation of multimodal sensory processes of memory and individual differences in remembering and imagination.
I am a 3rd year undergraduate student, majoring in Psychology. My research interests lie in looking at emotion and memory, as well as the factors that affect how we recall our autobiographical memories.
I am a Graduate Research Trainee majoring in Clinical neuropsychology. In my research, I try to determine how different factors such as emotion and stress can affect memory performance.

I am completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology. I am interested in how memories are formed and how they can be changed. I’m currently examining some key differences between the anterior and posterior portions of the hippocampus.
This could be you!
I am a third year undergraduate Psychology student. My interest areas include spatial and temporal processing of autobiographical memories as well as episodic memory biases in clinical decision-making.
My research interests include the mechanisms involved in and function of detailed remembering and forgetting.
