Eloise Gayer

 

COGNITIVE SCIENCE RESEARCH STUDENT

Eloise is a senior in the School of Arts and Sciences, double majoring in English and Cognitive Science. Her research primarily focuses on memory and the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to research for both the sciences and the humanities.

Recently she completed both an Aresty Research Assistant projects and a departmental honors thesis for the English department, both of which examined the role of memory in cognitive science and its application to literature. Currently she is assisting Kimele Persaud with her work on the role of prior knowledge and expectations in memory for color. Eloise’s future career plans are currently a mystery, but in the meantime she enjoys her multiple part-time jobs working as a barista, a cook at an outdoor Thai food restaurant, and a publicity intern for a local publishing company.
