My PhD project is about application of dual-process theory of recognition memory to a phenomenon in eyewitness recognition known as the positive/negative difference. Other areas of interest include forgiveness research, memory and learning generally and the influence of factors that are other major interests in my life such as tea and artistic pursuits on social behaviour and memory.
