I have exceptional mentors. Robert Bjork and Harold Kelley were instrumental mentors during my undergraduate years at UCLA and the year I took off to work as a lab rat before graduate school. Phoebe Ellsworth and Amos Tversky were wonderful and dedicated graduate mentors at Stanford University. As a junior faculty member at the University of Washington, Tony Greenwald and John Miyamoto played a major role in my continued development. The collaborators listed above continue to shape my thinking and help me grow as a scholar. See my collaborators 

Graduate Students

I have worked with excellent students throughout my career. I’ll list graduate students for whom I chaired or co-chaired their dissertation committee, and also list graduate students who worked closely with me on published papers or conference proceedings. I have also served on over 75 dissertation committees as a committee member and have hosted several international students on research visits. See my graduate students
