Dr Melissa Colloff
I conducted postgraduate research on the influence of alcohol intoxication on face recognition and completed a PhD examining how police lineup techniques for distinctive suspects influence eyewitness identification accuracy. During my education, I worked on applied and theoretical research projects at Edith Cowan University, Western Australia, The University of Leicester, UK and University of California, San Diego. After completing a PhD with Dr Kimberley Wade at Warwick University, I worked with Dr Heather Flowe on a funded project which examined whether a novel identification procedure can improve face recognition accuracy. I have been a Lecturer in Forensic Psychology at the University of Birmingham since 2018.
