Assistant Professor, Psychology
University of Regina
Dr. Bruer obtained her Ph.D. in Experimental and Applied Psychology from the University of Regina and completed a SSHRC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Toronto, Dr. Eric Jackman Institute for Child Studies. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Regina where she studies factors that facilitate the gathering of reliable evidence from child witnesses, with an emphasis on memory and truthfulness. In her research, she works with children between the ages of 4 through 12 to explore: (a) how police should gather memory evidence from child eyewitnesses; and, (b) the circumstances that impact whether a child will truthfully and completely report an experienced event.
