Project
As part of my PhD studentship, I undertook a 3-month placement at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST). During my time at POST, I researched and wrote a POSTnote on the topic of non-custodial sentences.
Project
To investigate the typical training practices (i.e. what type of training is being completed?), injuries (i.e. which injuries occur most frequently and what are the associated risk factors?) and identity (i.e. how does injury influence athletic identity?) of adolescent distance runners. This will be completed using mixed-methods, in collaboration with England Athletics.
