Research in the Child Memory Lab focuses on how children remember and learn. It is important to study this because police, social workers, teachers, and parents frequently need children to remember key information. My collaborators and I seek to understand how children's memory works and what are the best ways of questioning children about their experiences and knowledge. We also work with forensic investigators on investigating different interviewing practices when attempting to extract the most reliable memories possible from children.
