Alice is an experimental psychologist working on the UKRI-funded TRUE project with Prof. Yvonne McDermott-Rees, investigating the impact of deepfakes on trust in user-generated evidence in accountability processes for human rights violations.
Alice obtained a PhD in Experimental Psychology at University College London (UCL) in February 2022. Her thesis presented a descriptive framework of how people acquire, evaluate, and integrate information under uncertainty, and outlined the psychological mechanisms underpinning these sense-making processes. Her work included both laboratory experiments and naturalistic studies which investigated these processes in real-world domains including intelligence analysis and criminal investigations.
Her research has so far focused on investigating the psychological underpinnings of human judgment and decision-making under uncertainty, predominantly utilising a causal Bayesian framework.
Prior to obtaining a PhD, Alice completed an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL (2015-2016) and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology at the University of Bath (2011-2015).
