I am a senior lecturer, and Director of Undergraduate Learning and Teaching, in the Department of Psychology at Aston University, UK.
I study human memory, cognition, and social influence, with a particular interest in applications of these topics to issues in educational and legal psychology. My research focuses on themes such as:
- people's ability to remember past events and experiences, and information they have learned
- various factors that can shape or distort what we remember/believe
- how people engage with and respond to feedback about their 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 Union FP7, College of Policing, Higher Education Academy, British Academy, British Psychological Society, and Richard Benjamin Trust.
