Dr David Broadbent is a lecturer in Sport & Exercise Psychology and Research Methods. David joined Brunel University London in 2015 following the completion of his PhD at Liverpool John Moores University. The focus of David's PhD was on the effect of different practice conditions for the training of perceptual-cognitive skills in sport through the use of video simulations. Whilst completing his PhD David worked for three years part-time at Everton Football Club in the Recruitment and Scouting Department and then as a 1st Team Performance Analyst.
