Teaching Responsibilities

Having, in the past, been Course Leader of the undergraduate BSc (Honours) programmes, I am now Course Leader of the distance learning masters programmes MSc Child Forensic Studies: Psychology and Law and MSc Applied Psychology of Intellectual Disabilities. I have taught on Child Forensic Studies since it was developed around twenty years ago. I also teach on Applied Psychology of Intellectual Disabilities. I continue to teach and supervise students' research projects on both the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes (including the MSc Forensic Psychology course).



I am a member of the International Centre for Forensic Psychology within the Department of Psychology. This is consistent with my research interests, which include police investigative interviewing of child and adult suspects and witnesses, earwitness identification and eyewitness identification (more commonly known as 'identity parades', with earwitnessing relating to those cases in which the perpetrator has been heard rather than seen). My PhD supervision continues to be mainly on the topics of investigative interviewing of suspects and on earwitness and eyewitness identification. However, the main focus of my current research is the investigative interviewing of vulnerable witnesses.
