Kevin Paul Madore
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychology
BioI'm a Postdoctoral Fellow in Psychology at Stanford with Anthony Wagner and funded by an extramural NRSA F32 from NIA/NIH. I received a PhD in Psychology at Harvard with Dan Schacter in 2017 where I was extramurally funded by the Beinecke Scholarship and Sackler Psychobiology Program, and a BA in Psychology and History from Middlebury College in 2011.
My work focuses on human memory, particularly what we call retrieval, and aims to answer the following questions using a combination of behavioral, eyetracking (pupillometry), and neural (EEG, fMRI, concurrent EEG-fMRI, TMS) methods:
1) What mechanisms subserve memory retrieval?
2) How does retrieval contribute to functions beyond 'simple remembering', such as prospection and creativity?
3) How do trial-level changes in attention and goal-state orienting modulate retrieval?
4) How do trait-level differences in media multitasking and sustained attention relate to retrieval?
5) How does aging affect mechanisms, functions, and modulations of retrieval?
August 2020: My postdoc work on attention, goals, memory, and media multitasking is now in press at Nature.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Physics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests are wide-ranging:
1) In the context of gravity, how does spacetime emerge from its dual quantum system? How does the dual quantum system encode the answers to questions that involve local physics in semi-classical gravity? How do you avoid the "firewall" paradox in the context of black-hole evaporation?
2) How do you calculate electrical and heat currents in strongly-coupled many-body systems? How do you explain the linear-in-temperature resistivity in high-temperature cuprates?
3) Use tensor network methods to study electrical and heat transport and also the real-time dynamics of systems out of thermal equilibrium.
