I am a Reader in Psychology, and Director of Undergraduate Learning and Teaching, in the School 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 shape or distort what we remember/believe
how people respond to feedback about their performance and their memories
how we can help people to remember/learn 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.
