Dr. Andre Kehn
I received my B.S. in psychology from the University of Mount Olive (NC). I then volunteered as a research assistant at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I earned my M.S. and Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology with a focus on Psychology and Law from the University of Wyoming.
My research interests lie in the areas of social and cognitive psychological processes relevant to the law. I am specifically interested in  eyewitness memory,  juror decision-making, and  perception of witnesses. Generally speaking, I am interested in applying basic theory in social and cognitive psychology to gain a better understanding of how individuals remember witnessed events and make decisions in a legal context. I also have broader interests in race and gender based discrimination.
