Lecturer, University of Winchester
Feni is a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of Winchester. Her latest research focuses on the development of a protocol that can be used to elicit tactical information under time-limited conditions. She is also doing research on the use of information elicitation techniques in online settings. She completed her PhD at the University of Portsmouth, and was supervised by Professor Lorraine Hope, Professor Paul Taylor, and Professor Aldert Vrij as part of the Information Elicitation programme. She previously completed her MSc in Forensic Psychology at the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands.
She is primarily interested in the use of memory-enhancing techniques in interviewing and in the effects that cognitive, social and cultural factors have on reporting information. During my PhD I tested the effectiveness of mnemonics and reporting formats to facilitate retrieval for single and repeated multi-perpetrator events.
