Research Overview

My interests are in forensic and social psychology, especially interpersonal and contextual influences, criminal justice and crisis resolution. My MSc research project examined the public perception and subjective efficacy of community justice courts compared to traditional magistrates’ courts. I am currently working on Prof. Paul J Taylor’s project on cross-cultural differences in the effectiveness of strategies for educing information.
