I am an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Texas A&M International University.  I conduct research on human memory with a particular focus on investigative interviewing and applying psychology to counter-terrorism contexts.

On this website you will find information on my current and past research projects and downloadable versions of my publications and CV, as well as contact information.


Along with Sean Lane (University of Alabama, Huntsville), I have just signed a contract with New York University Press for a book on eyewitness memory.  Our book is tentatively titled “Understanding Eyewitness Events: Perception, Memory and Bridging the Basic-Applied Divide” and is scheduled for publication in 2020.
