My research background is in human memory, cognition, and social influence, particularly in applications of these topics to educational and legal psychology. My work has focused on themes such as:
how people retrieve memories of past events, experiences, and information they have learned
factors that shape or distort what we remember/believe
how people respond to feedback about their skills, performance, and memories
how we can help people to remember more effectively.
My research has been funded by the Assessments & Qualifications Alliance (AQA), Leverhulme Trust, Wellcome Trust, European Commission FP7, College of Policing, Higher Education Academy, British Academy, British Psychological Society, and Richard Benjamin Trust.
