“I love my teaching experiences at Quest, and I’m excited to continue to share my enthusiasm for applying memory theories to situations such as eyewitness testimony. I look forward to exploring this, and other psychological science questions, with a highly motivated and talented group of students.”
Tanjeem studies the psychological science of human memory. How can we remember things that never happened? And how can we prevent these errors in memory? At the University of Victoria, she studied factors that compromise the accuracy of eyewitness memory, such as the influence of co-witness discussion. As a post-doctoral researcher at Kent State University, she explored a novel line of research examining how false denials can affect people’s memories for a witnessed event.
