I am a lecturer in Sports Performance and Motor Control in the School of Sport Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences (SRES).
Prior to my appointment at the University of Essex, I worked within the applied setting for 7 years at Football Radar, and Everton Football Club, respectively. Alongside this, I also partook in several bespoke projects for a range of elite organisations, including FIFA, UEFA, Nike, and the English Premier League.
While working within industry, I attained my PhD at Liverpool John Moores University, examining perceptual-cognitive skill within sport. Specifically, my research focuses on identifying the key factors underlying pattern-recognition and anticipation expertise. In addition, I am interested in finding ways to accelerate the development of expertise, through perceptual training interventions.
