My research lies at the intersection of psychology and law. I aim to understand how normal psychological processes, such as memory, function within the setting of the criminal legal system. Specifically, I study the malleability of eyewitness memory and perceptions of eyewitness testimony in the courtroom. I also have an interest in how policies and procedures in the legal system may enhance or diminish eyewitness evidence.
