Research interests

My main interest is in the effect of variables (e.g. age, sleep, etc.) on eyewitness memory, specifically reliability and discriminability. Currently I hold a Neuroscience Scholarship at Royal Holloway, University of London, working on projects investigating the impact of sleep (i.e. sleep dependent memory consolidation) on eyewitness memory, under the supervision of Dr Jakke Tamminen and Dr Laura Mickes.  To delineate the impact of sleep on eyewitness memory I use sleep methods such as polysomnography and statistics (routed in signal detection theory) which have been recently imported into the field of eyewitness memory. These include Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis and Confidence-Accuracy Characteristic (CAC) analysis.

I am also collaborating with Dr Laura Mickes and Prof David Shanks (at University College London, UCL) on a project examining the effect of age on eyewitness memory. 


I currently teach workshops and lab clases on the Introduction to Psychological Research Methods (PS1010) first year psychology undergraduate course aimed at increasing students’ knowledge of statistics and experimental design.
