Research Statement

The primary focus of my research is better understanding of executive abilities (i.e., the abilities to plan, organize, and successfully execute mental and motor actions). In particular, I am interested in the development of better methodology for assessment of executive abilities in general as well as individual subcomponents of executive processes. See my website for further details.
