Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

I am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society and former Commonwealth Games finalist (high jump) and am interested in exploring the intersection of psychology, coaching instruction, and motor learning/control. Although my work is typically inspired by current research and practice in sport psychology, my personal research is often multidisciplinary in nature, employing psychological, biomechanical, and physiological measures.

Current research activities

To date, my research has focused on examining the effects of verbal instruction—particularly, analogy and explicit, step-by-step instruction—on movement and performance.

Desired research direction

In the future, I am interested in investigating the utility of alternative sources of information in the instruction and execution of motor skills. 

Target collaborative organisations

I am particularly keen to work with organisations and national governing bodies in the development of skill instruction and coaching education programmes.

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

I have experience consulting with athletes, teams, and sporting organisations in the areas of psychology, coaching, and skill learning.
