I am a senior lecturer, and Director of Undergraduate Learning and Teaching, in the Department of Psychology at Aston University, UK.
I study human memory and cognition. I am particularly interested in people's memory for past events and their own experiences (i.e., episodic and autobiographical memory), with a main focus on the factors that can shape, bias, or distort what we remember/believe about the past.
I often apply my research to issues in legal psychology, such as investigative interviewing and eyewitness memory, and also to issues in educational psychology, such as the remembering of instructors' feedback. However, I am also interested in the application of memory research in other areas, for example in the domain of health psychology.
My research has been funded by the Assessments & Qualifications Alliance (AQA), Leverhulme Trust, Wellcome Trust, European Union FP7, College of Policing, Higher Education Academy, British Academy, British Psychological Society, and Richard Benjamin Trust.
