I am a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at James Cook University, Townsville, Australia.

I primarily conduct laboratory experiments on human memory accuracy. I am particularly interested in how accurately people remember forensically relevant information. For example, I have published research examining eyewitnesses' accuracy when recalling crimes and jurors' accuracy when recalling trial evidence.

I teach research methods, statistics, and Cognitive Psychology.

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