Research Interests

My research interests revolve around understanding the legal system from a psychological standpoint. In particular, I want to understand why people are wrongfully convicted (and in Texas, put on death row) and what we can change in the system to prevent this injustice from happening. My thesis at The University of Texas examined jury bias in regards to race and family situation and at Cambridge, Dr. Lamb and I will be investigating the cross examination of children in the legal system.
