Research interests

Research interests include the use of qualitative and quantitative methods to explore topics across the fields of forensic psychology and criminology, as well as sport and exercise psychology.

Specifically, the use of sport in prisons to promote psychological well-being, and the role that masculinity and gender play in prisoners' engagement with sport. Prior to completing a PhD research interests were focused on the field of forensic interviewing and detecting deception.

Outside of forensic settings research focuses on theories of motivation, particularly motivation to engage in sport and exercise and the impact of this on health outcomes.
