Investigative and Forensic Psychology

Examining how different vulnerabilities affect eyewitness testimony

This group researches how different vulnerabilities affect eyewitness testimony with a particular expertise in research with children, the elderly and those with autism spectrum disorder. Within this framework topics include investigative interviewing (for example, the cognitive interview, self-administered interviews and issues associated with repeated interviews), suggestibility and ability to identify suspects correctly from line-ups. In addition, research is conducted into attitudes towards and perceptions of the police and potentially biasing factors in juror decision making.
