I completed an undergraduate degree in Sport Science (BSc) at St Mary’s University College, a Masters in Sport and Exercise Physiology at the University of Chichester, and a PhD in Sport Psychology at the University of Kent. During my PhD, I worked as the sport scientist for the Canterbury Institute of Sport. I am currently a lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology and an active member of the Motivation, Performance, and Wellbeing (MPaW) research group.

Further Information

Teaching

My main teaching responsibility lies in the area of Sport and Exercise Psychology. I have designed and delivered modules across all levels of undergraduate study. I supervise students at undergraduate, taught postgraduate, MSc by research, and PhD levels. 

Research

I conduct research in the area of Sport Psychology. A large focus of my research is the consequences of perfectionism in sport. In particular, I seek to investigate the impact perfectionism has on athlete wellbeing (e.g., burnout) and anti-social behaviours (e.g., doping). I have published extensively on these topics in world-leading journals such as the Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology and the Journal of Sports Sciences.
