Dr. Butler is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at Duke University, where he is working with Dr. David Rubin and Dr. Elizabeth Marsh. He earned a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology at Washington University in St. Louis in 2009 working with Dr. Henry L. Roediger, III. He is interested in the malleability of memory – the cognitive processes and mechanisms that cause memories to change or remain stable over time. His research focuses on how the process of retrieving memories affects the content (e.g., events, specific details, narrative structure, etc.) and phenomenological characteristics (e.g., confidence, emotional intensity, vividness, etc.) of those memories.
