Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

I am interested in the applications of face processing to the area of eyewitness identification. I have interests in whether child eyewitnesses are as reliable as adults and whether children use the same information and processes when recognising people. I have recently become interested in the area of voice recognition and the parallels between face and voice recognition, both developmentally and in an applied context.

Current research activities

Recent projects have focused on how well children can identify faces and voices from both target-absent and target-present line-ups and what may cause the different patterns observed for the different line-ups.  I am also currently looking at whether musicians are better at voice recognition than non-musicians.

Desired research direction

Desired research direction.

The goal of my research is to evaluate and understand the reasons why children may differ from adults in terms of face and voice identification – are these tasks that children just get better at as they develop cognitively or is there an underlying qualitative difference between the ways children and adults perceive and remember people.

Target collaborative organisations

Local Education Authorities and Schools
