Biography

Kristen T. Begosh is an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of Delaware. Her research in music psychology has included investigations in the cognitive strategies of musicians as they perform from memory and making connections between what is known about the way in which musicians prepare a piece to perform and how people might commit poetry to memory. She has also recently begun studying ways in which instructors can present information in their classes to maximize student learning outcomes.
