As an undergraduate student and Master's student at Simon Fraser University, I studied heuristic influences on remembering and categorization. As a doctoral student at McMaster University, I investigated the contribution of remembering principles to performance of non-remembering tasks, such as the speed and accuracy in which people perform perceptual identification tasks. These studies were aimed at learning more about how recent and related prior experiences can either facilitate or impair subsequent performance of a task. During my career at the University of Manitoba, I have been primarily interested in sources of distortion, error and inefficiency in remembering and perception tasks.
