Lecturer, sport and exercise psychology, Kingston University.
Katie's research interests lie in athlete cognition and the process of counterfactual thinking. Counterfactual thinking - or thoughts of "what might have been" - are pervasive in everyday life, and Katie is interested in looking at the prevalence of this thought process in athletes, with its emotional and behavioural consequences. With London 2012 about to start, she is well-placed to talk authoritively to the media when athletes "going for gold" come home in second place, and how their own thought processes may have played a part in both their performance and even in subsequent sporting challenges.
