Ms Charlotte Scobie
I am interested in jury decision making - particularly whether jurors are able to critically analyse forensic evidence and whether there are individual differences which will affect their ability to do so. I am also interested in investigating if opposing expert testimony is able to inform and sensitize jurors to unsound science.
In my current research I am examining whether a juror's epistemological disposition and ability to argue will affect their perception of anthropometric facial comparision (photo matching): a "junk science" which is based on methodologically flawed practices but is still used in Australian courts.
