Current Research

Most of my research involves an examination of the behavioural assumptions inherent in the law, specifically the factors influencing the of various decision makers within the criminal justice system (e.g. juries, police). One line of research in particular has emphasized decision making processes in cases involving violence against women (e.g., battered women, sexual assault), such as the impact of expert testimony about battered women's syndrome on juries). Another line of research examines racial bias in juror decision making and the efficacy of legal procedures in place to curb its influence.
