Tim Woodman is a leading Professor of Performance Psychology. He is world-renowned for his work on personality, stress, and anxiety. He has also developed a theory of risk-taking that places risk at the centre of human endeavour. In other words, according to Prof Woodman, risk is essential for human development, including in elite sport. He is currently accepting PhD students that have an interest in developing these topics.
