Megan Hermolle is a social psychologist who received her BSc from Wolverhampton University in 2012, her MSc Investigative Psychology from the University of Huddersfield in 2013, and a PCGE in post-compulsory education in 2018 from Staffordshire University. She is due to complete her PhD in Psychology at Keele University in Spring 2022. Her research intersects with law, feminism, and crime, centring on rape stereotype acceptance amongst those populations (i.e. lay people as juries; professionals; police interviewers) that represent varying points of the criminal justice system, and how these populations influence each other in addition to attrition rates for rape in the UK. She is also interested in making actionable evidence-based recommendations for policy and practice in police interviewing, jury education, and courts’ use of rape stereotypes.
