I am a Reader in the Psychology Department at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom. I am a cognitive psychologist and my main interest is memory, in particular, aspects of episodic and autobiographical memory, and autobiographical memory distortions.
My research addresses questions about how and why people come to believe in and remember entire events or aspects of events that never happened, and has theoretical implications for models of memory, and applications for legal and clinical domains.
I am a member of the Behavioural Science Research Group and Deputy Director of Warwick’s Centre for Operational Police Research (COPR)—an interdisciplinary network that brings together researchers from several departments across Warwick University, including Psychology, Law, Business and Politics. Our aim is to conduct police-related research that is both intellectually innovative and has clear policy and practice implications within policing. I am also an Associate Editor at Legal & Criminological Psychology and Executive Director of the Society for Applied Research in Memory and Cognition (SARMAC).
