My role is part of a collaboration between LJMU, British Gymnastics and UK Sports Institute (UKSI, formerly EIS) and involves operating in a dual capacity as a researcherpractitioner within BG and UKSI performance support teams. Particularly focusing within BG's performance pathway, I am looking at the psycho-social factors within talent development in these spaces. I am especially interested in exploring how such factors may be influenced environmentally including through coaching practice.
