Axelle Philippon

I’m a senior teaching fellow in the Department of Psychology and specialise in distance learning courses. Alongside contributing to the MSc in Psychology, I’m also an associate lecturer at The Open University. 

I’ve taught at the University of Portsmouth since 2001, and I’m currently the course leader for the MSc in Child Forensic Studies and the MSc in Psychology and Learning Disability. 

My research interests include eyewitness and earwitness ID and memory, cognitive bias in decision making, crimes against children, secondary trauma, and the wellbeing of frontline workers.
