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.
