Doctoral Student in psychology, focus on cognition and aging.
I teach mostly courses in general psychology. At the moment most of my teaching concerns cognitive psychology, research method and supervising of papers in psychology.
My research concerns cognition and aging. At the moment Im focusing on cognitive change in relation to aging, especially changes regarding memory. A special interest is in trying to identify factors that are related (positively as well as negatively) to amount and rate of cognitive decline in relation to aging (from the age of 70 and onwards).
