I am a Performance Psychologist and my PhD research investigated how athletes control their attention. Although my research is theory-based, it holds applications to the practice of sports and performance. Specifically I study the area of meta-attention - the knowledge and awareness performers have of their attention system and what they can do to control their attention. My research has created a theoretical understanding of meta-attention in golf to describe and explain the processes that enable concentration in performance.
My current research looks to further develop the understanding of meta-attention in sports and performance settings - an area which holds theoretical and applied implications.
In addition to my research, I hold teaching positions at Glasgow Caledonian University and The Open University. I have previously held short fixed term positions at Robert Gordon University and The University of Edinburgh.
