My research interests lie at the intersection of social psychology and law. I completed my BSc. at the University of Toronto, and my Master's and PhD at the University of Western Ontario. Prior to joining the faculty at York University, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Law and Social Sciences program at Northwestern University.
Most of my research has focused on behavioural assumptions in the law, and specifically on the behaviours of various decision makers (e.g. juries, police). I have conducted work on decision making processes of decision makers in cases involving violence against women (e.g., battered women, sexual assault). More recently, I've been studying the the impact of racial bias in the courtroom and legal strategies for curbing its influence (e.g., challenge for cause).
