I am a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at James Cook University, Townsville. I was born and educated in the UK. I relocated to Australia in 2017.

I primarily conduct research on human memory accuracy. For example, I have led research projects examining how accurately groups of people recall shared experiences together, how accurately eyewitnesses recall crimes, and how accurately jurors recall trial evidence. Importantly, I am also interested in knowing how human memory accuracy can be improved.

I specialise in teaching people about human memory, memory and law, research methods, and statistics. I have lectured to a range of different audiences including undergraduate students, fellow academics, medical professionals, and senior police officers.
