Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in Investigative Psychology and Director of the Social Conflict Lab. My PhD (Cognitive processes in lie detection) was obtained at University College London (UCL) under Dr. Daniel Richardson. My post-doc fellowship was carried out at University of British Columbia, Vancouver, under Prof. Alan Kingstone.

My research is centred around decision making in uncertain social environments. My primary research line is in developing cognitive theory in lie detection, where I have authored ALIED theory and challenged accounts of unconscious lie detection. I use a mixture of behavioural experiments, computational modeling, and eye tracking to carry out this work.

I am a keen advocate of working and communicating with the public.
