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.


The results of a recent cross-cultural collaboration between myself, Sarah Ewens, Aldert Vrij, Sharon Leal (University of Portsmouth, UK), Eunkyung Jo (Hallym University, South Korea), Alla Shaboltas, Maria Ivanova and Juliana Granskaya (St. Petersburg State University, Russia) on detecting deception in native vs. non-native speakers with and without the use of an interpreter has recently been accepted for publication in Applied Cognitive Psychology.
