Research Associate, University of Portsmouth

Feni is a research associate in the Psychology Department at the University of Portsmouth. Her work is focused on eliciting information in time-critical contexts. She previously completed her CREST-funded PhD at the University of Portsmouth, supervised by Professor Lorraine Hope, Professor Paul Taylor, and Professor Aldert Vrij as part of the Information Elicitation programme.

She is primarily interested in the use of memory-enhancing techniques and in the effects that cognitive and social factors have on interviewing and reporting. During her PhD she used an experimental approach to test the effectiveness of mnemonics and reporting formats to facilitate retrieval for complex witnessed events.
