We are an experienced team of applied academics at the University of Birmingham interested in applying techniques and methods derived from sports psychology to novel contexts.

We're particularly interested in getting communities involved in research and turning knowledge into action.

What we do

Our research originates in sports psychology and work with athletes.


However, our research has expanded to incorporate new territories such as the  health, well-being and social inclusion of homeless young people (see our Impacts page).


We also help our partners conduct high-quality research (see our Projects page for examples)
