Dr Julie Cherryman
Visiting Research Fellow
I am a principal lecturer in Psychology. I was awarded my PhD, on the topic of specialist investigative interviewing, in 2000.
I am a member of the International Centre for Forensic Psychology within the Department of Psychology. This is consistent with my research interests, which include police investigative interviewing of child and adult suspects and witnesses, earwitness identification and eyewitness identification (more commonly known as 'identity parades', with earwitnessing relating to those cases in which the perpetrator has been heard rather than seen). My PhD supervision continues to be mainly on the topics of investigative interviewing of suspects and on earwitness and eyewitness identification. However, the main focus of my current research is the investigative interviewing of vulnerable witnesses.
