The goal of our lab is to research people and their behaviours in sport and exercise contexts. Using theoretical and applied practices, we aim to understand the psychological influences contributing to sport and exercise involvement.

We conduct leading-edge research on imagery, athlete leadership, body image, cohesion, social physique anxiety, and team building.

We encourage you to explore this website to learn about who we are and what we do. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about the activities and opportunities in our laboratory.
