Fabiana Alceste earned her B.A. from the University of Florida and earned her Ph.D. from John Jay College of Criminal Justice/The Graduate Center, CUNY. She currently teaches introductory psychology courses and research methods/statistics. Dr. Alceste’s research area is Psychology and Law, a heavily applied field that examines the social and cognitive processes involved in the legal system, especially police interrogations and false confessions.

She hopes that work in this field will improve the criminal justice system by preventing and reversing wrongful convictions.
