Academic Timeline | Bio

Karen A. Daniels
I was born in Toronto, Ontario. I received my B.Sc. in psychology in 1997 from the University of Toronto at Scarborough. My senior thesis with Dr. Colin MacLeod examined the impact of directed forgetting instructions on implicit and explicit tests of memory (MacLeod & Daniels, 2000).

I received my Ph.D. from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2002. My dissertation, under the supervision of Dr. Randy Engle, used the distinction between controlled and automatic mental processes to explain individual differences in working-memory capacity.

From September 2002 to June 2004, I was a postdoctoral research associate at Washington University in St. Louis. In collaboration with Dr. Larry Jacoby, I explored the use of dual-process approaches for diagnosing and rehabilitating cognitive deficits in older adults.

I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
