Personal statement

I’m working as a Lecturer in Psychology at Bath Spa University.

My research is focused on human memory and investigative interviewing, namely on developing new procedures to enhance witnesses’ memory and obtaining more accurate information from crime witnesses and victims, as well as evaluating which of the recalled information is more likely to be accurate.

My work resulted in several publications in peer-reviewed journals, handbooks, and books, and in several oral presentations at international conferences. I’m a member of the GIMHUM (Human Memory Research Group – University of Minho) since 2009
