Biography

I joined Abertay University in August 2017 as Professor of Duty of Care in Sport in the School of Applied Sciences. My academic qualifications include a PhD in sport psychology from the University of Western Australia, a Master’s degree in counselling psychology from Harvard University and a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Boston College.

Interests

The central focus of my research is on the well-being and welfare of participants in sport. My research aims to grow trustworthiness in sport, and contribute to more responsible support for the people involved, whether they take part or deliver sport in some way. I have supervised 36 PhD students to completion and has been external examiner for 45 PhD students. My ORCID ID is 0000-0002-3829-293X
