Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in Investigative Psychology and Director of the Social Conflict Lab. My research is centred around decision making 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 currently working with Bob's Business Ltd on a two-year project on phishing scams and a three-year ESRC project developing a computational model of human lie detection.

I have been fortunate enough to have collaborated with North Yorkshire Police, The AntiSocial Engineer, Bob's Business, and Bradford Safeguarding Children Board.

I am currently supervising Greg Best and Karl Sedge as PhD students in the lab. Greg is developing a psychological theory of social engineering while Karl is interested in how mental models play into our understanding of how people make lie-truth judgments.

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

My PhD (Cognitive processes in lie detection) was obtained at University College London, and my post-doc fellowship was carried out at University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

Research Degree Supervision

I am happy to supervise projects that fall within my area of expertise. I am particularly interested in supervising projects that develop a theoretical understanding of how people make lie-truth judgments, but I will supervise in other areas too.
