My research interests are focused on motor cognition, an area concerned with understanding the representation of actions. Topics of interest for researchers are mental imagery, observational learning, and embodied cognition. This has implications at a practitioner level with, for example, the use of embodied metaphors in consulting, the role of mental imagery in positive psychology, and body image distortions with mental health challenges. Recent funding from IRC, AASP, BPS, and BASES.
