Lora M. Levett
Ph.D. Associate Professor of Criminology
My research uses social and cognitive psychological methods and theory to explore various aspects of decision making in our legal system. Under that umbrella, most of the research in my lab explores juror and jury decision making, eyewitness identification, and antecedents and consequences of wrongful conviction. My goal in research is to understand the factors that affect decision making and to develop methods that help actors in the legal system make the best possible decisions.
