DPhil Student

My research concerns the application of mindfulness based interventions to improve depression in elite athletes. I am particularly interested in the relationship between mental health and athletic performance, and how mindfulness can be utilised to improve both these factors in elite sport settings. I receive funding from the Rugby Players Association and I am supervised by Dr. Willem Kuyken.

Before commencing my DPhil I played professional rugby for 14 years after leaving school aged 18. During this time I completed a BSc Economics and Mathematical Science at the Open University, and undertook a PgDip Applied Neuroscience at Kings College London, receiving a distinction.
