Postgraduate researchers in Lincoln Sport and Exercise Psychology (LSEP) Research group delivered presentations on their doctoral projects as part of the annual School of Sport & Exercise Science Seminar Series 2020-21. Aided by the virtual format, it was excellent to see many students and staff from our School joined in the audience by UK-based and international guests.
Ollie Williamson, who is in the first year of a dual studentship at the University of Lincoln and Southern Cross University, Australia, opened up proceedings by offering an insight into progress made on his review of goal setting interventions in sport, supervised by Dr Matthew Bird, Dr Trish Jackman, Associate Professor Christian Swann (Southern Cross University), and Dr Kyle Bennett (Southern Cross University). Next, Rebecca Hawkins, supervised by Dr Trish Jackman, Professor David Mullineaux, and Associate Professor Christian Swann, provided an update on her research on open goals for physical activity promotion. To finish, Rachel Langbein, now in the final year of her PhD and supervised by Dr Trish Jackman, Professor Jacquelyn Allen-Collinson, and Dr Dan Martin, provided an overview of the studies contributing to her PhD thesis on psychological experience of low energy availability in sport and exercise.
