We use experimental methodologies to examine cognitive psychological processes (e.g., memory, attention, perception, and decision processes) in forensic, military, and human intelligence settings. More specifically, our research has evaluated:
- strategies and tactics that facilitate the disclosure of information in interviews and interrogations of cooperative and non-cooperative individuals
- biases and strategic approaches to assessing credibility in forensic interviews
- factors that influence eyewitness memory and lineup identification
- extra-legal biases and the influence of expert testimony on legal decision-making
- human perception and factors that influence comparative forensic science decisions
- meta-analytic reviews of various basic and applied findings in the literature
