Career Specialties: Benjamin Marsh specializes in cognitive psychology.

Professional and Community Activities: Marsh researches how cognitive processes are mediated by language and culture, mostly focusing on memory processes. More specifically, he researchers how language facilitates memory retrieval (Marsh, Kanaya, & Pezdek, 2015), the factors that influence face recognition accuracy (Marsh, Pezdek, & Ozery, 2016) and how lexical structures are cognitively linked to mental representations of culture. Also, he is interested in phenomenological factors that influence the likelihood of having a false memory (Marsh, Pezdek, & Lam, 2014). While his research is conducted with most populations, he regularly studies how these effects manifest in people who are bilingual and bicultural.

Honors and Awards: After college, Marsh received a Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in Hong Kong.
