I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Investigative Interviewing Laboratory at the University of Texas at El Paso in the USA.  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.


Along with my colleagues Christian Meissner and Jacqueline Evans I have conducted a meta-analysis of the psychological processes underlying true and false confessions.  This meta-analysis has been published in the newly released book on Investigative Interviewing, edited by Ray Bull.
