My name is Whitney Hansen, and I am currently a lecturer at Arizona State University. I graduated from ASU in 2011 with a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology. As a graduate student, my research focused on individual differences in working memory capacity, cognitive control, and the interaction of the two. My dissertation examined the mechanisms that contribute to intentional forgetting of innocuous information. I am also interested in eye-witness memory, long-term memory, and age-related cognitive decline. As a former member of the Memory and Language Lab, I was involved in a variety of research projects that span an assortment of topics, including visual search, psycholinguistics, and even magic!

As a lecturer, I am currently balancing my research interests with a full teaching schedule. I teach a variety of courses at ASU, including: Introduction to Psychology, Memory and Cognition, Physiological Psychology, Advanced Cognitive Psychology, Experimental Psychology, and Introduction to Statistics. For more information about my research and teaching interests, use the links at the top of the page. For information about my collaborators, including current and previous members of the Memory and Language Lab, please look under Links.
