Our Forensic Psychology research has a broad, applied focus. Some examples of our work in this area include programmatic research investigating:
- Aversive personalities and cross cultural differences in the application of Forensic Psychology
- Sensational interests (e.g., deliberate weight gain and feederism)
- Memory for faces: eye-witness memory and identification of perpetrators
- Suicide risk assessment from a person centred perspective
- Clinical decision-making in violence risk assessment, and decision making applied to other forensic contexts
We have recently set up a new national research sharing group: Postgraduate FOrensic Psychology and CriminOlogy Research Network (PoPCoRN), which brings together research students from all over Scotland.
