Dr. Andrea Eslick earned her Bachelor of Science in psychology from Iowa State University in 2006 and her master’s and doctorate in psychology and neuroscience, with a specialization in cognition, from Duke University in 2009 and 2011, respectively. Originally from Dayton, Iowa, she was excited to return to the Midwest when she began her position as an assistant professor of psychology at Wartburg in the fall of 2012. Prior to Wartburg, she was a visiting assistant professor at Colby College in Waterville, Maine.

Her research interests include memory errors and distortions in real-world scenarios. She currently is evaluating forced confabulation in eyewitness memory and how retrieval practice influences memory errors that occur as a result of such confabulation.

Eslick teaches general courses in the psychology curriculum (such as Introduction to Psychology and the research methods sequence). She also teaches Cognitive Psychology and Applications of Human Memory. In recent years, she developed a May Term travel course that includes visiting Germany, the Czech Republic, and Austria while evaluating the historical context of psychology as a field.
