Specialization

My research on children’s eyewitness testimony (understanding how children remember, misremember, forget, and tell about events they’ve experienced) uses psychological theory and empirical research to generate evidence based recommendations for questioning children in forensic contexts. Ultimately, my research program is designed to increase the accuracy and validity of legal decisions involving children. An important part of this work involves the dissemination of research findings. I regularly train and consult with the interviewing and legal communities to help translate research into public policy and inform investigative practices.
