Personal profile

Research interests

PhD Candidate in Legal Psychology at Maastricht University (NL) and the University of Gothenburg  (SE) with the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Programme from the House of Legal Psychology. 

My PhD research is focused on investigative interviews with uncooperative witnesses. It examines interviewing strategies used to overcome resistance and gain witness cooperation; as well as how does lack of cooperation affect information disclosure and witness memory, in order to evaluate the reliability of witness testimony from uncooperative witnesses.

Supervisory team: Prof. Peter van Koppen & Dr. Robert Horselenberg (UM) and Prof. Leif Strömwall & Dr. Sara Landström (GU).
