    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    I study human memory, cognition, and social influence, with a particular interest in applications of these topics to issues in legal and educational psychology. My research focuses on themes such as:

    • people's ability to remember past events and experiences, and information they have learned
    • 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

    • BSc (Hons) Psychology - University of Warwick (2006)
    • Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching - University of Surrey (2012)
