Eva Gjorgieva graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 2015 with a B.S. in psychology and minor in neuroscience. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience under the supervision of Drs. Marty Woldorff, Roberto Cabeza, and Tobias Egner. Eva’s research focuses on the ways in which interactions between internally-directed and externally-directed attention are coordinated as a function of intentionality and how this predicts subsequent memory. In addition, Eva is interested in understanding post-error adjustments in attention and cognitive control and their influence on memory.
