He is a Chartered Psychologist, a Fellow of the British Association of Sports & Exercise Sciences and a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. His research activities and associated publications have primarily focused on the cognitive and psychophysiological mechanisms of fatigue and pacing among athletes. In particular, his work has attempted to explaining how athletes experience and interpret their internal physiological state in the context of their external environment, and how perceptual integration influences athletic decision-making and the regulation of physical exertion to avoid premature fatigue during exercise.
