I obtained my honours degree in Psychology and Sociology at Brunel University in July 2013. The title of my dissertation was ‘Mu and Alpha Activity in Point-Light Videos During a Visuo-Spatial Task: The Modulating Effects of Football Expertise’.
After winning a School of Sport and Education PhD bursary, I commenced my PhD research in February 2014 under the supervision of Dr Daniel Bishop, Prof Mark Williams and Dr Claudia Gonzalez. In March 2015 I presented at the Research Student Conference; I was awarded a certificate for being one of the highest scorers in the College of Health and Life Sciences. I also represented our Division in the Brunel Three-Minute Thesis (3MT™) competition. In April 2015 I was awarded an EPS Grindley Grant for Conference Attendance, which enabled me to present my research at the North American Society for the Psychology of Sport and Physical Activity.
In March 2016 I was invited to present my research at the European Seminar “Sport & Exercise Psychology Under the Leaning Tower”, in Pisa. In April 2016 I presented my project at the Research on Imagery and Observation (RIO) conference in Manchester, where my presentation was nominated amongst the top five student presentations.
