I am a lecturer in Psychology at Abertay University in Dundee. My research concerns how our memory is working and what factors might negatively or positively impact our memory recall. I apply this knowledge to forensic settings, such as investigative interviews. Before I joined Abertay in August 2018, I worked as a lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University, where I mainly taught on their MSc Forensic Psychology program. Before that, I was a senior lecturer at London South Bank University. Before commencing my first lectureship, I worked as a post-doctoral research at Royal Holloway University in London on a Leverhulme-funded project examining how to improve memory recall by elderly mock-witnesses. My PhD was funded by SIPR and examined facial composite construction by individuals with intellectual disabilities. I completed my PhD at Abertay University in 2010


My research interests lie in the area of applied memory research. I am particularly, interested what factors impact our memory and how we can apply this knowledge to forensic settings, such as interviewing witnesses and victims. In the past, I have examined how to best interview vulnerable mock-witnesses, including people with intellectual disabilities and the elderly. I have also studied how drinking alcohol and alcohol-related expectancies influence our memory reports and metacognition.
