About Angela Kilb
I am a cognitive psychologist who specializes in the study of memory, particularly as it relates to aging. My interests involve associating memories with their respective contexts, finding strategies to improve memory performance, preventing false memories, and avoiding the tip-of-the-tongue phenomenon. Motivated students who are interested in working on research projects are encouraged to contact me directly about joining the Lifetime Learning Laboratory.
