Dr Kim Drake

Senior Lecturer and Head of Year 2

Room: Vivian Tower 910c
Email: k.e.drake@swansea.ac.uk

I’m a forensic developmental psychologist, teaching development across the lifespan in the 2nd year and my specialised forensic psychology module in the 3rd, and final, undergraduate year.   My interests centre on miscarriages of justice, false confessions and why it is that some individuals end up at a greater risk of false confessions (and therefore being wrongfully convicted) than others. I also have strong interests in parent-child attachment, and how parent-child relationships can affect child-development.

Outside of work, I’m a keen cyclist and enjoy the outdoors.  Living on the south Gower coast is great for this.   I also dance argentine tango – I learned this whilst living in London after University, and have been dancing socially for over 5 years now!

To find Kim, go to the 9th floor, through the double doors, turn left and then immediately right again, and you’ll find her office opposite some research cubicles.
