I'm a lecturer at Lancaster University. 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.
My research focuses on deception, particularly detecting lies about intentions. I use a variety of methods to study verbal and non-verbal cues to deception. I also study when people lie and how they decide what the content of that lie should be.
