Personal profile


I hold BA (2005) and MA (2012) degrees in Psychology from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon. In 2014, I joined the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Programme in Legal Psychology. I was supervised by Professors Aldert Vrij and Lorraine Hope and Dr. Samantha Mann at the University of Portsmouth and by Professors Pär Anders Granhag and Leif Strömwall at the University of Gothenburg. I completed my PhD in September 2017 and continued working with Prof. Vrij's research team. We have received a grant worth $511,452 from the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG) since August 2020.

Research Interests

My doctoral thesis project examined various interview techniques that enhance lie detection in forensic contexts. I was specifically interested in interview techniques that elicit differences in statement consistency between lie tellers and truth tellers. My postdoctoral research expands on my thesis project to different verbal cues to deceit and to memory-based lie detection. My HIG-funded project examines the effectiveness of sketch-based interview techniques in forensic settings.
