The Netherlands - Enide Maegherman 

After completing her Psychology degree at Royal Holloway, University of London, Enide Maegherman moved to Maastricht to complete the Psychology and Law master. Her interest in legal psychology only increased, so she decided to do the master in Forensics, Criminology, and Law the following year. During both of these programs, she narrowed down her main interest to legal decision-making, and specifically to reasoning about evidence. That subsequently became the topic of her PhD research. She is currently in the second year of her PhD, funded by the House of Legal Psychology.
