I am a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology. My work has focused on the use of information elicitation techniques in forensic and security settings. I completed my PhD at the University of Portsmouth, as part of the Information Elicitation programme of the Centre for Research & Evidence for Security Threats (CREST - www.crestresearch.ac.uk). I previously completed my MSc in Forensic Psychology at the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands, and my BSc in Psychology in Athens, Greece.
