Research overview

My research focuses on detecting lies about intentions. I use a variety of methods to study verbal and non-verbal cues to deception. My students and I ask participants to lie or tell the truth about their intentions in interviews and analyse their answers. I also investigate the efficiency of using computerised reaction time tasks (such as Implicit Association Tests). 

My Role

I am a lecturer in the Department of Psychology and connected to Security Lancaster.


I have a BSc in psychology and an MPhil in cognitive neuroscience (Leiden University, the Netherlands, 2007, 2009, both with distinctions). My PhD in psychology is from the University of Portsmouth (2012) and was on Lying about Intentions.
