Jaume Masip

Jaume Masip's research focuses on the verbal and nonverbal detection of deception. Among several other issues, he has explored:

(1) Police officers’ lie-detection accuracy and biases, as well as the strategies officers use when judging veracity
(2) Beliefs about the cues to deception
(3) Judgmental biases in judging veracity caused by deception-detection training
(4) The impact of facial appearance on truthfulness attributions
(5) How the time at which observers make their decision during a statement influences their veracity judgments
(6) Linguistic (e.g., using LIWC) and verbal (e.g., CBCA, RM, ARJS) cues to deception
(7) Contextual cues to deception
(8) The Behavior Analysis Interview (BAI)
(9) Liars’ strategies to be convincing
