My research concerns how people make memory-based decisions about faces, particularly after witnessing a crime. I aim to understand how social and cognitive factors affect how people make these decisions and the strategies, accuracy, and confidence with which these decisions are made. I also conduct some research on face recognition and friendly fire.

I am a Senior Lecturer at Queen Margaret University, where I have been since 2013. At Queen Margaret University I am a member of the Centre for Applied Social Sciences and the Memory Research Group. Previously I was as an Assistant Professor at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, Canada) in their Forensic Psychology area. I completed my MA (Social psychology) and PhD (Brain, Behavior, and Cognitive Science) at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada.
