      Collapse Overview 
      Collapse Overview
      The body of research I have developed during my graduate and postdoctoral training has focused on characterizing & augmenting aspects of skill acquisition & cognitive control. The approach I have taken in studying these domains has involved a strong interdisciplinary component that bridges aspects of motor learning and psychology in healthy young and older adults, with more recent efforts centering on depressed individuals as well as ethnic minorities. My current work leverages state-of-the-art technological approaches to create i) advanced training tools to remediate cognitive deficiencies (see our cover story in Nature, Anguera et al., 2013) and ii) sophisticated approaches using mobile technology to robustly characterizing individual abilities outside of the laboratory.
