I joined the Department as a Lecturer in 2004. Prior to this, I was a researcher at the University of Aberdeen and worked on a number of projects examining the particular strengths and vulnerabilities associated with eyewitnesses and, in particular, older eyewitnesses. During this period, I also worked with the Eyewitness Research Group and the local Grampian Police on associated projects, including the production of facial composites, such as E-fits. I also have an interest in jury systems and biases associated with juror and jury decision-making and my doctoral work examined the impact of biases on memory and decision-making.
