Meet our lab
Katherine competed her PhD at New York University, studying how hippocampal subfields contribute to memory formation and retrieval. She then moved uptown to Columbia University where she studied interactions between the hippocampus and dopaminergic system. In the summer of 2015, she returned to the University of Toronto, where she had studied as an undergraduate student. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the St. George campus.

I received my Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University. My research aims to characterize how and where knowledge is neurally represented in the brain, and how the brain changes as new concepts are learned. I am also interested in applications of this research to education and instructional design.

I am a graduate student in the psychology department at the St. George campus of University of Toronto. Before coming to UofT, I completed a Postbaccalaureate Psychology Certificate Program from Columbia University, after which I served as a lab manager in the Davachi Lab at New York University. Currently, I am using behavioural and neuroimaging techniques to investigate the effect of novelty and reward on episodic memory.

My interests are in using interdisciplinary methods of neuroscience and psychology to address questions of how to live a good life. More specifically, I am interested in curiosity, and the intrinsic rewards for the development of understanding. My research in the lab approaches this by looking at reward-seeking and goal-directed action, as well as the cognitive processes involved in understanding the complexities of the real world.
I am a current second degree student at the University of Toronto in the Research Specialist Psychology Program. I did my first degree at McGill University in Molecular Biology and History, and am looking to pursue graduate studies in research psychology in the future. I’m hoping to integrate my interests in biology, neuroscience, and psychology.
I am currently a third-year undergraduate student, working on a double major in psychology and linguistics. I have a particular interest in cognitive and positive psychology, as well as in East Asian languages and writing systems. I am hoping to pursue graduate studies in psychology in the future.
Undergraduate Thesis Students
I am currently completing a Psychology Research Specialist and a minor in Physiology at the University of Toronto. My past research experiences include using eye-tracking to understand the influence of temporally coherent and incoherent information as well as investigating statistical learning. I will be conducting my thesis in Dr.Duncan’s lab as a continuation of my mini-thesis project on the influences of statistical learning towards language acquisition.
I am an incoming second year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, enrolled in a Neuroscience specialist and a Psychology minor. I am interested in how memories are consolidated and retrieved in the brain, and how the malfunction of these processes lead to behavioural changes and neurodegenerative diseases. I hope to study medicine in the future, and integrate both research and clinical skills towards treating people with neurodegenerative diseases.
I am currently a third year undergraduate student in the Psychology specialist and Cognitive Science major programs. I’m interested in investigating the factors that influence memory encoding and retrieval processes. I’m hoping to pursue graduate studies in cognitive psychology.
I am currently a second degree student at the University of Toronto, taking courses in Psychology and Human Biology. I also hold a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance from the University of Toronto, work as a freelance singer, and teach music to children. I plan on pursuing graduate studies in clinical psychology in the future, and hope to one day combine my interests in psychology and music to improve the lives of those diagnosed with neurodegenerative diseases.
I am currently a fourth year undergraduate student in psychology specialist and cognitive science major programs. I have a broad interest in most areas of psychology, both areas involved in understanding basic cognitive processes and areas involved in more applied fields intrigue me. My current independent project focuses on reinforced learning and memory. During my leisure time, I like observing cats and playing piano.
I am currently a second year student in University of Toronto, taking neuroscience and psychology double major. I am very interested in cognitive and developmental psychology. Therefore, I plan on pursuing graduate studies in related areas in the future. I also volunteer at ICU departments in Toronto General Hospital doing paper-cutting art for patients.
I am a fourth year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, studying neuroscience and psychology. I am interested in cognitive and clinical psychology, and I hope to learn more about the implications of memory in various cognitive disorders. I plan to pursue medical school in the future.
