I completed my PhD at Brunel University in 2018 where I conducted a global investigation of child maltreatment in youth sport. During this time I also worked as one of the original researchers who oversaw the development of the International Safeguards for Children in Sport and it's accompanying implementation guide. This built upon over 10 years of experience working with young athletes at all levels of sport in various performance and pastoral centered roles.
In my role as a Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology I foster an active learning environment which bridges conceptual understanding of the psychological factors in sport and exercise, with practical understanding of the real-world implementation of this content. This provides a platform to help facilitate graduates who are resourceful and are able to effectively problem solve, while possessing the appropriate knowledge and skills to be successful in the chosen discipline.
