RESEARCH INTERESTS

-Forensic Psychology
- psychopathy
- emotion perception and expression
- victim selection

Broadly, I am interested in the area of Forensic Psychology. More specifically, my research interests focus on psychopathy and its relationship with a number of variables that relate directly to victim selection. These variables include emotion perception, successful deception/manipulation, and accuracy of vulnerability judgments.
