Summary

costas-karageorghis

Dr Costas Karageorghis is a reader in sport psychology and served as deputy head (research) of the former School of Sport and Education from 2009-14. He has established an international reputation for his research into the psychological, psychophysical and ergogenic effects of music. Costas is the author of 75 peer-reviewed and 100 professional articles in sport and exercise psychology. He has made more than 100 conference presentations and given numerous invited presentations at national and international conferences, including eight keynote speeches. He has also delivered six public lectures in recent years with the next one scheduled for Wednesday 28 September 2016 in Beckenham, Kent (contact jonathan.bird@brunel.ac.uk for bookings). Costas has captured several research grants during his career and is currently leading projects with US-based tech companies and for England Rugby.

Costas’s music research has been featured in newspapers around the world; most recently in the Times, Independent, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and Sydney Morning Herald. In 2011 he was the recipient of the Sportesse Award for Exercise Sciences at the annual conference of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences. The award was for new theoretical work in the area of music and physical activity. He is currently working on multi-modal stimulation during physical activity that entails the use of music, video images and visual primes. Such work is oriented towards enhancing people's sensory experiences during physical activity, with a view to increasing exercise adherence and promoting public health.

Costas is a chartered member of the British Psychological Society and a double-accredited member of BASES (psychology research and scientific support). In September 2010 he was elected a Fellow of BASES for his services to sport and exercise sciences in the UK. In September 2013 he was awarded Chartered Scientist status by the Science Council. Costas acts as consultant psychologist to a number of international and professional athletes and has worked with a wide variety of UK governing bodies of sport (e.g.British Athletics, British Canoe Union, British Water Ski Federation and England Hockey). He has also worked with many multinational companies in the sports world and music industry.

From 2007-11 Costas was head coach of the Great Britain Students athletics team. He has also managed and coached the Brunel University London Athletics Team since the early 90s. During this time, the team have won seven British Universities championships including the 2010 women’s national indoor championship. Most recently, the team finished runners-up at the 2016 British Universities indoor championships. In 2004 he was made Honorary Life President of Brunel University London Athletics Club and, in 2008, Vice-President of Blackheath and Bromley Harriers Athletics Club.

In his spare time, Costas enjoys playing the piano and often performs in a jazz and latin duo with drummer Joel Shopland.

Research

Research interests

Costas’s main research interest is the psychological, psychophysical and ergogenic effects of music in the domain of exercise and sport. This is a topic that he has examined systematically for over 20 years using a broad range of scientific approaches and methods. His programme of research has entailed the development of conceptual frameworks and grounded theory, the production and validation of measurement tools, laboratory-based experimentation (e.g. psychometric, EEG, EMG, fMRI, respiratory), and in vivo studies.

Costas has completed a number of industrial projects that include work with Nike Inc. on the Portable Sport Audio MP3 player, Sony UK on the W series of sport MP3 headphones, Bio-Medical Research Ltd. (Ireland) on the Mentor behavioural screening programme, and David Lloyd Leisure Ltd on the development of a music policy for their chain of health clubs. He was principal author of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences’ (BASES) national expert statement on the use of music in exercise.

From 2007-10 Costas led a large-scale consultancy project with the International Management Group (IMG) that entailed coordinating live music with mass participation running events – Run to the Beat. He made scientific contributions and served as a media spokesperson for several events in the UK and across mainland Europe. Prior to the London 2012 Olympic Games he worked with Redbull UK Ltd. on the Performance Track Project that entailed the creation of a bespoke pre-competition track for Olympic 400-metre hurdler Dai Greene. The project involved a collaboration with the well-known producer Redlight. In 2015-16 Costas led a research project for England Rugby on the creation and testing of bespoke music programmes for 02 Touch, a mixed-gender form of touch rugby.

Costas has worked extensively with the music industry to release a number of sport and exercise-related compilations including the bestselling Run to the Beat CD and Ministry of Sound: Run to the Beat 2010. In 2014, he collaborated with leading soprano Laura Wright and Decca Records on the production of The Sound of Strength album, which is the first classical music album to be written and arranged specifically for physical exercise. In 2011, Costas published a textbook entitled Inside Sport Psychology (Human Kinetics; ISBN 978-0-7360-3329-9) that is co-authored by Prof Peter Terry (University of Southern Queensland). The book was subsequently translated into Polish (2014) and Turkish (2015). In August 2016, Costas is releasing a new sole-authored textbook entitled Applying Music in Exercise and Sport (Human Kinetics; ISBN 978-1-4925-1381-0). The book appraises contemporary research, provides a new theoretical framework, and presents specific recommendations to enable exercise and sport professionals to use music more effectively.

Costas contributed three chapters to the text Sporting Sounds: Relationships Between Sport and Music (Routledge 2009) as well as chapters in New Sport and Exercise Psychology Companion (Fitness Information Technology 2011), Sport, Music, Identities (Taylor & Francis 2014), and Sport and Exercise Psychology (Taylor & Francis 2016). He has just completed music-related chapters for the texts Art in Motion III (2016) and the Routledge Companion to Embodied Music Interaction (2017).

Costas’s PhD graduates include: Drs David-Lee Priest (2004; Author and Lecturer at City College Norwich), Kelly J. Ashford (2005; Senior Lecturer at Cardiff Metropolitan University), Ruth M. Hewston (2005; Senior Lecturer at University of Worcester), Daniel T. Bishop (2007; Senior Lecturer at Brunel), Georgios Loizou (2008; Diplomat for Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Cyprus), Massimo M. Vencato (2010; Freelance Consultant), Harry Lim (2012; Sport Psychologist at Singapore Sports Institute), Alessandra Mecozzi Saha (2013; Registered Psychologist in Australia) and Leighton Jones (2014; Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University).
