Personal profile

Research Interests

My research draws on experimental paradigms and theory from clinical psychology and cognitive science in order to understand real-life situations in which memory distortion can be maladaptive. I am particularly interested in autobiographical memory for negative and traumatic experiences, and intrusive and involuntary memories. I am also interested in attitudes towards wrongful conviction, expectancy effects, the relationship between alcohol, crime and memory, and other legal implications of memory distortion.
