My main area of research focuses on the detection of deception. So far, I have been involved in research exploring a number of issues including the following:

  • Lie detection accuracy and biases of police officers.
  • Beliefs about deception cues.
  • Judgmental biases in judging veracity caused by deception-detection training or expertise.
  • The impact of facial appearance on truthfulness attributions.
  • How the time at which observers make their decision influences their veracity judgments.
  • The source of truth and lie biases in judging veracity.
  • The Behavior Analysis Interview (BAI).
  • Liars’ strategies to be convincing.
  • Interviewing to detect deception.
  • Cognitive models of deception, and theroretical perspectives on lie detection.
  • Linguistic deception cues, deception detection in written and transcribed accounts, and the usefulness of the LIWC software to detect deception.
  • Verbal credibility assessment: Criteria-based Content Analysis (CBCA) and the Reality Monitoring (RM) approach.
  • Verbal and nonverbal cues to deception.
  • Contextual deception cues.
  • How people detect detection in everyday life.
