Scholarly Interests:

Generally, I am interested in the intersection of psychology and the law. Using principles from social and cognitive psychology, I have several lines of research: social eyewitness memory, jury decisions, deception detection, and interrogations. I am also interested in how minorities (gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation) are treated within the legal system. I am currently working with students on projects regarding the juvenile justice system, meditation and micro-expressions and juror perceptions of gender and crime details.
