PhD Research investigating the nature of athletes' relationships with their sport and sport environment and the implications this has on regulating individuals' psychological needs and well-being. 

Teaching and Supervision

Teaching: Currently lecture shadow statistic classes for undergraduate and masters research design and statistic modules. 

Supervision: I co-supervised three 3rd year undergraduates last academic year, and three 2nd year undergraduates who i am continuing to supervise throughout their last year. 



My enthusiasm for research began during my undergraduate when i researched the underlying motives for engaging in high-risk sport. My relationship with high-risk sport and risk taking, and the positive psychological effects it derives caught my attention, motivating me to investigate individuals' motives for participating in different sporting endeavours (i.e., high and low-risk sport). 

Sports i participate in: Motocross, downhill mountain biking, white water kayaking, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, ultra running, fell running.
