I joined UNF from the UK where I was the Director of Memory and Learning in the Lifespan. I have spent over a decade being part of cutting-edge research on the importance of Working Memory in education. In addition to publishing scientific articles, I have also authored test batteries and books. My research has appeared in over 250 news articles, and I have been invited to comment on television and radio as an expert on Working Memory.
Working memory is like our brain's Post-it Note. We use it to process information and keep it "active". I am interested in the many ways that working memory is involved in daily life, from education to relationships, from mental health to intelligence.
Some of my work includes journal articles that are in the TOP 10 Cited list by Scopus. In addition to my journal publications, I have written and edited 7 books for and published 2 standardized tests of Working Memory (Pearson). These books and test batteries have been translated in almost 50 languages.
In my lab, we are interested in the link between Working Memory and a number of behaviors, from creative intelligence to Facebook use, from buying behaviors to emotional intelligence.
