Research Interests

Dr. Schreiber Compo’s research focuses on investigative interviewing, especially the interviewing 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 studying other 'players' in the legal field, e.g., real-world investigator's perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors. Her research findings are published in scientific journals such as Law and Human Behavior, Journal of Applied Psychology, Psychology, Public Policy and the Law, Applied Cognitive Psychology and Journal of Experimental Child Psychology. Dr. Schreiber Compo has conducted research with and trained several law enforcement agencies. Her I-LAB involves a variety of undergraduate and graduate projects in the area of witness interviewing.
