Rebecca is doctoral-level social scientist with expertise in memory distortion and the implications of memory issues for eyewitness testimony. Her insights are invaluable assets when evaluating and preparing witnesses and developing case theory. She designs mock trials, interviews jurors, and assists in jury selections on all types of cases.

Rebecca was selected to be a Pedogogical Fellow at UC Irvine where she was also a lecturer. Her courses included teaching Introductory Psychology, and an upper division course in Eyewitness Testimony. Rebecca studied with the memory expert Elizabeth Loftus, and has published several articles in understanding and uncertainty in decision making. In addition, she has studied individual differences in susceptibility to developing false memory, including an exciting line of research involving people with highly superior autobiographical memory (HSAM).
