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 eyewitness memory 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.


Rapport is a concept that many researchers use, but its measurement is difficult and at times elusive.  My research on Rapport and the challenges I have encountered with its measurement will be presented at the upcoming conference for the Society for Applied Research in Memory and Cognition (SARMAC) in Victoria, Canada, June 24th—27th, 2015.
