Post-Doctoral Research Associates
Courtney is a post-doc in the Bjork lab. She is currently focusing on the the effects of errors on later learning.
Steven C. Pan is a Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Bjork lab. His research program focuses on investigating methods of improving human learning and performance in educational contexts. Areas of emphasis include retrieval practice, interleaving, pretesting, and other evidence-based learning techniques. Steven‘s research also encompasses a variety of subject areas such as STEM education, spelling, and second language learning.
Erin is a fifth year graduate student with broad interests focusing on the application of cognitive psychology to educational practice including how to improve learners’ metacognitive awareness for effective study strategies, how to improve learning through effective testing, and how to activate already known, but seemingly unrecallable “marginal knowledge.” Currently, her main focus is using a confidence-weighted multiple-choice test format to improve productive retrieval processes during testing.
Saskia is a third year graduate student and interested in cognitive processes that enhance long-term learning and transfer of knowledge to new circumstances in the classroom and in sports.
Jordan is a second-year graduate student humbled to be a part of the Bjork lab. Broadly interested in the intersection of cognitive research and educational practice, Jordan is currently interested in exploring the efficacy of pre-tests as pedagogical devices and the extent to which test format may contribute to the learning and retention of initially tested and initially untested information.
Megan is a first-year graduate student interested in improving learning through strengthening the encoding and retrieval of accurate information and rejection of inaccurate information. She also has a specific interest in learning from non-traditional sources.
Lab Manager and Staff Research Associate
Stefany started at the Bjork Lab last year. She is interested in looking at individual differences in memory, as well as examining the pre-test effect with classroom materials.
