I graduated from the University of Magdeburg with a degree in Psychology. Subsequently I worked in a forensic psychiatric hospital for two years and started my further professional education in legal psychology before coming to Cambridge. Last year I started a Master’s programme in Criminology, followed by a PhD. I am especially interested in eyewitness psychology and ways to improve witness performance of older adult witnesses. During my PhD I will look at a new investigative interviewing technique and will conduct a series of experiments with older adults. In future, I hope to contribute to German and international investigative interviewing and help minimize wrongful convictions. After finishing my further professional education I also intend to work for law courts as a chartered forensic psychologist and furthermore, provide training for judges and lawyers concerning the psychological and psychiatric overlap with the legal system.
