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

    • 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 Commission FP7, College of Policing, Higher Education Academy, British Academy, British Psychological Society, and Richard Benjamin Trust.
