I graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2011 with a first class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science and was also given an award for Outstanding Academic Achievement. I returned to the department to undertake her PhD in October 2012.


My current research interests lie in the domain of organisational psychology in sport, with a particular focus on positive psychology and strengths-based approaches to optimising personal, relational, and organisational excellence.
