Research Areas

Nadja Schreiber Compo's research focuses on investigative interviewing and witness memory, especially in the context of vulnerable witnesses such as children or the intoxicated. She is both interested in potentially detrimental and beneficial interviewing techniques and their underlying cognitive and social mechanisms to improve the quality and quantity of witness and victim recall. She is further interested in examining real-world interviewers' perceptions, experiences and behaviors. She has worked with several law enforcement agencies on research and investigative interviewing training and has consulted in various legal cases. The I-LAB involves a variety of undergraduate and graduate projects in the area of witness interviewing and the research has been funded by NIJ, NSF and the Swedish Research Council.
