An Iowa State University (ISU) professor will discuss his research into police interrogations as part of the William D. Griffith Speaker Series Thursday, Sept. 7, at the University of Wyoming.

Christian Meissner, from ISU’s Department of Psychology, will discuss “Developing an Effective, Rapport-Based Approach to Interrogation: From Research to Practice” at 1:20 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Family Room. The program is free and open to the public.

The Griffith Speaker Series is supported by the William D. Griffith Endowment, founded in 1992 by Wyoming native and longtime FBI agent William D. Griffith. Visit for more information.

In his research, Meissner uses cognitive theories to test a variety of criminal justice-related issues such as interrogations, deception detection, eyewitness memory and legal decision making.

Meissner’s research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Intelligence Community.

His talk is sponsored by the UW Department of Criminal Justice and the College of Arts and Sciences.
