Overview

I am an academic at James Cook University, Australia.

I conduct laboratory-based experiments focussed on understanding and enhancing human memory. Within this broad area I am most passionate about studying memory's role in the legal system and its impact on criminal justice. For example, I have published research examining mock eyewitnesses' ability to remember crimes and mock jurors' ability to remember trial evidence.​

I specialise in teaching research methods, statistics, and Cognitive Psychology.

I have a BA (Hons) in Psychology, an MSc in Psychological Research Methods, and a PhD in Psychology.
