I am a Psychology Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at James Cook University, Australia. Prior to joining James Cook University, I obtained my BA, MSc, and PhD in Psychology at Lancaster University. I then worked for 6 years as a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Edge Hill University and for 3 years as a Lecturer in Psychology at University of Liverpool.
I conduct laboratory based experiments studying human memory. Within this broad area, I am particularly passionate about memory of legally relevant information and have published research on understanding and enhancing eyewitness's memory of crimes and juror's memory of trial evidence. I am also interested in understanding internal moderating factors that can influence human memory performance more generally, such as emotional arousal and sleepiness, and external factors that can distort human memory performance, such as misinformation from other people or media sources.
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.
