Meet the Loftus Lab!


Skip to... Erin, Danny, Janice, Keri, Allyss, Martin, Michelle, or Kelly

Erin Harley

Erin is a 5th-year graduate student working towards a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology. She came to the UW after receiving a BA in Psychology at Boston University in 1997. Erin is interested in how the human visual system processes and interprets the visual environment, and how such interpretations affect human performance on real-world tasks. She has studied the effects of image degradation on visual perception and memory, and is currently investigating perceptual metacognition, in particular, visual hindsight bias.

Janice Chen

Janice grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska. She did her undergraduate work in the Brain & Cognitive Sciences program at MIT and now works for Geoff Loftus as a research assistant. She plans to go to graduate school within the next few years. Janice thinks the weather in Seattle is fantastic, which probably says something about Alaska and Boston.
