Dr Gillespie’s research is at the intersection of clinical and forensic psychology. He has published widely on attention and physiological reactivity to social and affective cues, the association of cognitive and affective processes with psychopathic personality and aggressive and antisocial behaviors (including sexual violence), and the treatment given to offenders with a focus on improving emotion regulation (e.g., the use of mindfulness techniques). Dr Gillespie is the recipient of several grants from research councils in the UK to fund his research with people in prions who have personality disorders or who have committed sexual and violent offences. He has been invited to present his work internationally and sits on the Editorial Board for the journal Sexual Abuse.
