Maartje Schreuder

Maartje Schreuder works at the interplay between (legal) psychology and forensic linguistics, in this way combining her linguistic background (PhD Groningen University, 2006) with her current work as a lecturer at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience at Maastricht University. Her research interests are in forensic speech analysis, earwitnesses, and cognitive biases in forensic experts’ work, the last topic strongly relating to her case work as an expert witness for The Maastricht Forensic Institute. In her case work, she applies a blind procedure, in fact a form of sequential unmasking, with an evidence line-up including fillers, to prevent herself against bias as much as possible.
