Research Associate

Louise Jupe


In 2004, I graduated from Bournemouth University with a BSc (Hons) in Applied Psychology and Computing. My dissertation explored the use of leading questions when presented via computer-mediated communication as opposed to face-to-face communication. I then went on to complete a two year postgraduate diploma in Child Development and Social Psychology whilst I began teaching A Level Psychology and Criminology. In 2009, I graduated the University of Portsmouth with an MSc in Forensic Psychology. My dissertation looked at juvenile lie detection abilities and I was awarded the Elizabeth Loftus award for my research, for which I gained a distinction.

Research Interests

In 2014, I started a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Aldert Vrij, Dr. Sharon Leal and Dr. Galit Nahari. My first study investigated the Verifiability Approach as a tool to detect Identity Deception within truthful and deceptive verbal statements. I am currently examining Identity Deception within recruitment interviews which forms my second study. I am progressing by looking more closely at specific interview techniques to elicit differences between individuals who lie and tell the truth about their identity. In October 2015 I began a Research Associate position, funded by the HIG and under the supervision of Prof. Aldert Vrij. This research investigates both memory-based lie detection and collaborative interviewing and lie detection. 

I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), the BPS Division of Forensic Psychology (DFP), the Society for Applied Research in Memory and Cognition (SARMAC), the International Investigative Interviewing Research Group (iIIRG) and the European Association of Psychology and Law (EAPL).
