Research interests

My research explores how spatial anxiety and nostalgia affect our ability to navigate. I intend to understand the processes involved between these constructs. For example, how does spatial anxiety decrease our ability to orient ourselves in our environment? By evoking nostalgia, can this improve our navigational ability and reduce spatial anxiety? 

I am also interested in how nostalgic cues aid navigation for people living with Mild Cognitive Impairment and mild dementia.
