Postgraduate Researcher


Research interests

My research interests include understanding social-information processing in individuals who have committed sexual offences against children. My PhD research focuses on the associations between beliefs and attitudes (implicit theories) supporting child molestation and other psychological/criminological constructs, such as hostile attribution bias and hostile sexism.

Thesis title

A Dangerous World and other Implicit Theories – Does biased information processing lead to sexual offending?
