Expertise DescriptionI have more than 30 years experience in the field of Human Factors. I specialize in criminal evaluation, language, issues involving the application of science to methods (for example, of training, or ways to evaluate hazards, or how best to question a witness), to accuracy (for example, what factors affect the accuracy of memory, of eyewitness identification from a lineup, of fingerprint comparisons, of a child’s memory, of a recovered memory); and to assessment (for example, of performance, of the safety of a work environment, of the quantitative success of a training program). I have over 30 years expert witness experience.
