My primary research expertise: (i) Forensic Psychology: specifically, police investigative interviewing; interrogative suggestibility; compliance and false confessions, and (ii) Developmental Psychology: the effects of attachment, contextual risk factors and stress-sensitivity on the development of suggestibility, compliance and psychopathology; and (iii) quantitative research methods – statistical modelling (regression, factor analysis, structural equation modelling and longitudinal data analysis especially).
Alongside academic activities, I have acted as a consultant for police forces and miscarriage of justice organisations. Additional professional involvements include ad hoc peer reviewing and editorial board duties.
