Forensic face-matching examiners provide vital identification evidence in criminal investigations. Research has shown that examiners possess expertise in face-matching, but the expertise and how it develops is poorly understood.

This project aims to investigate potential benefits from face-matching processes used by expert examiners and approaches to collaborative decision making by multiple examiners to improve performance.
