Assistant Lecturer Forensic Psychology/PhD Candidate, Birmingham City University

Sarah has always been interested in forensic psychology, and thus it felt natural that this would be the focus of her academic journey. After completing a PgCert and Diploma in Psychology at Birmingham City University, she progressed on to studying the MSc in Forensic Psychology. Sarah's dissertation investigated the role of rape myths in jury (group) decision making. This then fuelled her PhD topic, which looks at the collective decision-making processes of juries.

Now in her second year, Sarah is currently doing her SEDA teaching qualification and is due to begin her role as an Assistant Lecturer in Forensic Psychology in January 2019. She is also a member of the Forensic Research Network Group, which looks at better ways to communicate forensic science/evidence within the Criminal Justice System.
