About Dan

Dan is a Researcher and Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Psychology, and the Head of Employability, Marketing and Student Recruitment for Sport, Health & Exercise Sciences. After obtaining his honours degree in Psychology, Dan completed his MSc in Sport & Exercise at The University of Exeter before attaining his PhD in Sport & Exercise Psychology at Brunel, thereafter taking up his current academic post in 2007. Dan has worked in the public and private sector, including work in local authorities, the National Health Service, investment banks, the health & fitness industry and Further Education. He is a British Psychological Society (BPS) Chartered Psychologist registered to practise with the Health and Care Professions Council, and is an Associate Fellow of the BPS. Dan supervises a number of Brunel MSc graduates, each of whom are looking to become BPS-Chartered Psychologists. To this end, Dan has set up onsite sport psychology services for Brunel’s Sport Scholars; since the inception of this service, he has obtained outstanding results, including two national champions (fencing and karate), a javelin thrower setting a season’s best by 2 m - and a  2014 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup racing driver lying a very close second in the Championship at the time of writing! But when he is not working, Dan loves to spend time with his family & friends, and still tries to run long distances, in the (maybe vain) hope that he may better his marathon Personal Best of 2:44:33…

Teaching Interests

Dan holds a City and Guilds 7407 Certificate (Stage 1) in Further Education. He was the first member of academic staff to complete the Professional Development in Academic Practice here at Brunel; he is also is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He has conducted research to examine the quality of visually impaired students’ experience at the University, attracting HEFCE-allocated funding (£19.3K) in doing so.

Dan currently leads two master’s-level modules on the MSc Sport Sciences (all pathways) and MSc in Sport & Exercise Psychology:

  • SP5508: Research Methods and Data Analysis
  • SP5521: Individual Differences in Sport and Exercise

He also delivers on the following master’s modules:

· SP5522: Advanced Research and Application in the Psychology of Sports Performance

· SP5535: Social Processes in Sport and Exercise

and on the following undergraduate modules:

· SP1033: The Psychology of Personal Development and Sport

· SP2017: Principles of Coaching Effectiveness

· SP3023: Applied Sport Psychology: An Individual Differences Perspective

Research Interests

Research Interests

Dan’s research interests began with his PhD programme, wherein he examined the emotional responses to music in young athletes; he collected affective, behavioural, and neuroimaging data in doing so. Although Dan has retained an active interest in the use of music in sport and exercise, as typified by his co-authorship of the 2012 BASES Expert Statement on the use of music in exercise, and his continued supervision of PhD students in the area, he has recently been integrally involved in the examination of the neural bases for expert-novice differences in anticipation skill, using fMRI technology; he is a member of the Centre for Cognition and Neuroimaging and an Authorised User of the co-owned MRI scanner based at the Combined Universities Brain Imaging Centre (CUBIC) to this end.

Dan’s current research interests have stemmed from this examination of perceptual-cognitive expertise in sport, to the investigation of crossmodal attention – most notably the effects of concurrently presenting information not only visually, but also in auditory and/or kinaesthetic modalities. He is also working collaboratively with colleagues at Brunel to examine the changes that occur during skill acquisition via action observation.
