I am a senior lecturer conducting Sport and Exercise Science research within the Institue of the Psychology of Elite Performance. This aspect of Performance Psychology research resides in effective coaching, performance development and expertise. I am particularly interested in investigating how we can accelerate the journey to expertise via adopting a multidisaplinary approach to understading the performer. For eaxmple, psychosocial and socio-cultural variables, life events and life-style, physical characteristics, training and practice conditions, and the coaching environment. Throughout this research, I work with high profile Sports Organisations e.g., UK Sport, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), Weightlifting Wales, England Athletics and UK Deaf Sport.
