I study how prior knowledge affects future learning. This broad question informs several lines of research. First, I am interested in (a) how semantic relations are represented in long-term memory, (b) how they are retrieved by different instances and exemplars, (c) how they influence episodic memory, language comprehension and analogical reasoning. Second, I am interested in the effects of item strength on learning and working memory. To address these questions, my work combines behavioral experiments, cognitive modeling and neuroimaging techniques.
