Lamberton Professor Named

September 12, 2007

Michelle Leichtman, associate professor of psychology, has been selected as the Lamberton Professor in the study of criminal justice and society for the period of 2007-2010.

Leichtman holds a B.A. in psychology from Wellesley College and an M.A. and Ph.D in developmental psychology from Cornell University. After several years on the faculty of Harvard University, she joined the UNH psychology department in 2002.

Leichtman is a developmental psychologist with research interests in memory development, broadly construed. Her research is situated at the intersection of social and cognitive development, often focusing on social and environmental factors that influence memory processes during infancy, childhood and adulthood.

Several diverse strands of research include cross-cultural differences in autobiographical memories, suggestibility of children's memory, and other basic issues (e.g., ontogeny, sex differences) in early and later memory development. Leichtman teaches courses in developmental psychology, social and cognitive development, memory development and research methods.

The Lamberton Professorship was established in 2001 through the generosity of Alfred and Sallie Lamberton. Past recipients of this prestigious award are James Tucker, associate professor and chair of the sociology department, and Ellen Cohn, professor of psychology and coordinator of the justice studies program.
