Research Interests

Memories of media messages

My research interests concern media processes and effects. In particular, I am interested in memories of mediated messages. I examine effects of message and receiver variables on memory judgments, using signal detection and calibration methods to analyze memory strength, memory decision criteria, and confidence in memory judgments.
