She works in Professor Stephen J. Ceci's Child Witness & Cognition (CWC) Lab on a transnational study of children's eyewitness memory and suggestibility.

Blume on a study of competency to be executed. Her research interests include but are not limited to child witness, child testimony, forensic interviewing, and other topics in psychology and law. 

She is currently pursuing basic and translational research in psychological science to better connect developmental and behavioral science research to outreach and extension in legal proceedings.
