My research is strongly influenced by the honest belief that understanding how our brains store memories will help us to better remember. My ambition is to unravel enhancing effects of prior knowledge-related learning strategies, aiming to teach students to strengthen their knowledge. This way, we will all be able to learn information more effectively, and enjoy it more. At the same time, I aim to resolve fundamental questions about how our brains store memories as related to prior knowledge.
