Alicia Forsberg is a Lecturer in Cognitive and Developmental Psychology at the University of Sheffield. She is interested in working memory and the development of memory and attention across the human lifespan, focusing on both child development and cognitive ageing. Recently, she has been exploring the relationship between working and long-term memory as well as the development of object and feature memory. Her research also examines lifespan differences in metacognition and how people approach cognitive tasks. The ultimate aim of her research is to find better ways to support memory and learning throughout the life course. Alicia is a 2023-2025 Jacobs Foundation Research Fellow.
