Research Interests:
Research

My primary research interests include psychology and law, specifically juror decision-making in victimization cases

With regard to psychology and law my research focuses on investigating the impact of witness memory in the courtroom. In most of my studies I have studied child witnesses in court, but have now extended my study to include elders as witnesses. These studies have included various court contexts and type of evidence: repressed memory, DNA evidence, hearsay testimony, demeanor of witnesses, type of crime disclosure, type of crime, and the impact of courtroom experts.

I will be accepting graduate student applications for my lab for Fall 2018
