I am the Programme Lead for the BA Business and Enterprise in Sport degree and teach on the following modules: Introduction to Sport and Business Psychology, Stress, Performance and Behaviour, and Professional Development & Experiential Learning. I also supervise honours students on our BSc Programmes and have taught on both the MSc Clinical Exercise and Health programme and the MSc Sports Performance Programme.
