Professor of Forensic Psychology, University of Central Lancashire

Charlie teaches on various courses within forensic psychology at University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN). He is the main lead for the award-winning EvoFIT composite system that is sold to police forces in the UK and overseas.

Using the EvoFIT system, witnesses choose from a selection of faces that bear a resemblance to an assailant. A composite image of the suspect is "evolved" over time.

Charlie's research focuses mainly on the construction and identification of these facial composite images. He supervises students at undergraduate and postgraduate level and has published over 70 peer-reviewed papers.

He is a Chartered Scientist, a Chartered Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
