The Science of Learning & Memory

World-Renowned Learning and Memory Expert

Given that knowledge is power, why are we so bad at discovering and retaining new information? The typical modern learner is distracted and overwhelmed, and often little time is allocated to the training and development of workers—even though we know how critical it is to the success of an organization. Dr. Alice Kim’s essential keynotes help us unlock the power of memory and access our untapped potential.

Dr. Alice Kim is an expert on how we learn and form new memories. Her PhD work focused on the brain science of learning and memory, and her current research investigates how cognitive principles of learning and memory can be optimally applied in the real world, including industry, education, and memory rehabilitation settings.

Alice is a Canada Millennium Excellence Laureate and has been the recipient of various awards from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. She conducts her research at York University, where she also teaches undergraduate courses on cognitive psychology.
