I specialize in the psychological aspects of torture: on the effects of those who have suffered it; the psychosocial dynamics that support it; and the variables involved in the testimony or confessions obtained under related interrogations. I have lectured throughought Latin America and the United States, often at the request of theSupreme Court of Mexico. My work involves research, case examination, and expert forensic testimony through my private collective of forensic psychologists, Cienca Aplicada.
