Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

My area of expertise is in sport psychology, and the professional development of sport practitioners. In particular I research the learning and development of psychologists, sport scientists, and coaches. My research interests in professional development cover the career span - from trainees to experienced practitioners and I am interested in how learning environments can be optimised for a range practitioners.

I am also involved in providing sport psychology support to clients. I am a BASES accredited Sport Scientist and Chartered Scientist. I am a former Chair of the Division of Sport & Exercise Psychology Scottish Network.

Current research activities

I am currently working on a project that examines the experiences of trainee sport psychologists through a professional judgement and decision making framework. I am interested in how decision making is trained in psychologists, for instance what learning activities can enhance decision making.

In another project, I am examining transformational change in young people who have recently completed an Arctic expedition. I am working with Polar Academy, a Scottish Charity, to further their evidence-base on how and why expeditions are life altering to young people.
