Research Interests

My research interests include

  • Sport psychology and performance
  • Meta-analyses in sport psychology
  • Physical activity in youth
  • Mood measurement in sport and physical activity contexts

The research theories that I specifically examine include:

  1. Achievement Goal Theory
  2. Self-Determination Theory
  3. The Big Five Personalities

Research Planning

I am currently seeking cross cultural collaborations for projects that examine in some combination the theories/models that I am most familiar and physical activity pursuits including competitive sport of children to adults of groups typically marginalized and under researched. I am also open to exploring other theories to guide cross cultural research endeavors.

Consulting Experience

I consult with athletes concerning performance enhancement issues.
