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 Psychology and Learning Disability. I have taught on Child Forensic Studies since it was developed over two decades ago. I also teach on Psychology and Learning Disability. I now mainly teach and supervise students' research projects on postgraduate programmes. 



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. My PhD supervision continues to be mainly on the topics of investigative interviewing of suspects and the investigative interviewing of vulnerable witnesses, including those with learning disabilities.
