In 2012, I graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a first class honours degree in Forensic Psychology. My BSc dissertation explored the use of deliberate eye contact as a cue to deceit.

In October 2012, continuing my interest in deceptive behaviour Sarah I a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Aldert Vrij, Dr Lucy Akehurst and Dr Sharon Leal. My PhD research is looking into the use of an interpreter in an interview setting.
