My research focuses on detecting lies about intentions. One part of this is that I study intentions: how they are made, remembered and executed. I’m also trying to adapt traditional lie detection methods to detect lies about intentions: I study verbal and non-verbal cues to deception and also investigate the efficiency of using computerised reaction time tasks.

I am a research fellow for Security Lancaster in the Department of Psychology 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.
