Katie’s research interests lie in applied cognitive psychology, with two main strands: autism and eyewitness/forensic psychology. Her current work, focuses on how autistic adults think and communicate differently, and what adaptations service providers can make to accommodate these differences.

This includes assessing credibility of autistic witnesses by jurors and how to improve current police interview strategies to produce better evidence.
