About me

I am a ‘pracademic’ coaching practitioner who focuses on solving ‘real world’ problems within sport.

My work is underpinned by an interdisciplinary 'biopsychosocial' approach to performance in which I embrace complexity. I am a BASES accredited and charted scientist, with developing expertise in social and implementation science. Fundamental to my research and teaching is that I am an active triathlon coach who works in both high-performance and club environments.

Prior to my appointment in November 2015, I worked for British Cycling on projects at participation and high-performance levels. I also worked as a sport and exercise scientist (physiology) at the sportscotland Institute of Sport, primarily with Scottish Cycling and the Scottish Rugby Union but also in swimming, snow-sport, curling and tennis.
