Personal profile


Emma joined Edge Hill in 2006 after completing her BSc (Hons) in Sport & Exercise Science at the same institution (awarded by Lancaster University in 2005). Since then, she was awarded her PG Cert in HE Teaching in 2010, and is one of 3 departmental staff to hold BASES Accreditation (since 2013) in Sport Science Support (specialising in Psychology).

Emma is also in the final stages of a part-time PhD at Liverpool John Moores University.

Research interests

Emma’s research focuses on reflective practice and sports practitioners, with a particular focus on sport and exercise scientists. Emma is currently in the ‘writing up’ phase of a PhD in reflective practice (RP), examining its efficacy and development over time within sport and exercise science (SES) practitioners engaged in BASES supervised experience (SE). Emma’s research on reflective practice in sport has informed a revised version of the BASES Reflective Practice core workshop (commencing Autumn 2018) which all BASES SE delegates or trainee sport and exercise scientists must complete.


Emma is a Senior Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Psychology and member of the Sport and Exercise Science team in the Department of Sport and Physical Activity where she also is module leader for Professional Practice in Sport and Exercise Science and Applied Sport Psychology, both modules at Level 6.
