PhD Student, Lancaster University
Irina is currently working on a CREST PhD on cross cultural deception detection. She has an MSc in Developmental Psychology, with Distinction, from Lancaster University (2014). Her BSc is a Combined Honours Degree in Psychology and Childhood and Youth Studies, with First Class Honours, from Manchester Metropolitan University (2012).
Her general fields of interest are forensic psychology and developmental psychology. In particular she is interested in developing new methods of lie detection. To this end, she is currently working on testing how well existing methods of lie detection generalise across cultures. In her MSc research she investigated how well the task of building a scale model could be used to detect lying in primary school aged children.
Irina's PhD is being supervised by Professor Paul Taylor (Lancaster).
