I used to fly across the country regularly to participate in 1-2 day meetings that could have taken place via teleconference. I’m no longer willing to do that.

I’ve probably cut back on my flights by ~300% relative to a few years ago. I do still intend to fly occasionally, but I think carefully before booking a trip.

I study the cognitive and brain mechanisms underlying memory, reasoning, and goal-directed behavior. I investigate how these mental capacities emerge over childhood, and how they’re honed by experience.
