My primary research area is within the field of training in investigative interviews of child sexual abuse. I have developed and tested a training software that employs avatars and response algorithms. The software aims to train interviewers how to interview children following evidence-based recommendations. The development of this program resulted in different international collaborations. I am collaborating with the Estonian and Japanese police to test the software in real cases. Another project in Sweden is aimed to evaluate the effects of hypothesis testing in CSA cases. I am collaborating with NYU (Shanghai) in a project designed to test the effects of a Chinese version of the software. The training software is available in seven languages (Japanese, Estonian, Icelandic, Finnish, Italian, German, English), with a Chinese and a Swedish version in production.
My research interests can be summarised in these broad topics: Investigative interviews, deep learning algorithms, pedagogical techniques aimed at improve learning, deception detection, investigations in child sexual abuse, hypothesis testing in investigations, use of VR, serious gaming, augment reality within a forensic research topic.
