Memory can change in a variety of interesting ways as we get older, but it doesn’t simply get worse. I am interested in how certain aspects of memory are impaired, enhanced or maintained in old age, and to what degree people are aware of principles that guide memory (a form of metacognition).

When adults confront profound and prolonged stressors, what factors enhance or hinder their well-being and health? The ultimate goal of my program of research is to promote optimal quality of life and health for adults and their loved ones as they live with major stressors, with a focus on the experience of cancer. In my laboratory, we first work to characterize useful and harmful responses to major stressors. We then translate those findings into action by developing and testing approaches to enhance psychological and physical health during serious stressors.
