Abstract for Paul

In elite sport coaches often aim to improve athletic performance by adjusting technique towards a preconceived optimal. In most cases the preconceived optimal is determined anecdotally or via coaching literature and is rarely specific to the individual athlete. This presentation will explore and discuss how predictive modelling can be utilised in elite sport to improve individual performance using case studies from cricket and athletics.

Abstract for Laura

My research broadly covers two distinct (but often related) areas; goal pursuit and mental health and well-being in sport and exercise. In the first half of the seminar, I will briefly talk about my current research projects in these areas, including the findings of recent study examining team goal pursuit and ongoing work evaluating a physical activity intervention embedded in peer support groups for individuals severely affected by mental illness. The second half of the talk will focus on my future research ideas, with the aim of fostering collaborations with colleagues based on shared interests and areas of expertise
