Hello! I'm Riya.
I've recently graduated from York's Glendon campus with an Honours B.A in psychology. I’m continuing to work on my honours thesis project under the supervision of Dr. Andrée-Ann Cyr, which is focusing on agency of choice during learning and how that affects memory throughout the lifespan.
I’m also working as a research assistant at Baycrest’s Rotman Research Institute in Dr. Donna Rose Addis’ Addis Memory Lab, with one of its areas of focus being autobiographical memory in aging populations.
As my knowledge in memory is growing with these experiences, I hope to continue exploring it in graduate school and incorporate a developmental aspect into the mix by analyzing how memory and learning occur in childhood.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching anime and listening to podcasts!
