Stella Bain has been employed as a Lecturer in social and forensic psychology at Glasgow Caledonian University since 2003. She was awarded her BA (Hons) Psychology from the University of Strathclyde in 1997. In 2002 she was awarded her PhD, also from the University of Strathclyde. In 2011 she was awarded her MSc Applied Forensic Psychology (with Distinction) from the University of Leicester. Her ESRC funded PhD, entitled “Measuring interrogative suggestibility: Questions of reliability and validity”, assessed in detail the effects of varying interviewee uncertainty, and interviewee perceptions of psychological distance, on measures of interrogative suggestibility. Since completing her PhD she has continued to conduct research and publish in this area. Her primary research interests are in factors that affect the assessment of suggestibility on the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scales (GSS), and in investigating the theoretical explanations that account for suggestible responding. She has provided expert testimony and consultancy in relation to these issues. She has also recently conducted research examining the comprehension of the Scottish police caution.
