Areas of Interest

  • Electroencephalography (EEG; e.g., event-related potential and oscillatory analysis)
  • Categorization processes (e.g., perceptual and semantic categorization)
  • Studies on neurodiversity (e.g., autism spectrum disorder)
  • Human memory (e.g., episodic, semantic, and prospective memory)
  • Cognitive processes across the life-span
