Dan is a Senior Lecturer in Human Movement and Sport Psychology. He was awarded a Doctorate of Philosophy in Psychology from Lancaster University (cognitive neuroscience and experimental psychology), and is also a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.

Dan has a BSc and Master of Research in Sport & Exercise Science from Leeds Metropolitan University and Liverpool John Moores University (respectively), and a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in HE from Teesside University.

Dan is currently a review editor for ‘Frontiers in Movement Science and Sport Psychology’ and ‘Imagination, Cognition and Personality’. He also peer reviews for many journals in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience and Sport Science. Recently Dan joined the organising committee for the Research in Imagery and Observation Group. He has also given psychological support to international athletes across a range of sports.

Dan is the programme leader for the BSc Sport & Exercise (Coaching Science), and regularly teaches at all levels within the undergraduate and postgraduate provision. He has also taught a Masters-level course in motor control and learning at Sheffield Hallam University. Previously Dan led all marketing and recruitment activities for the Sport Science undergraduate portfolio at Teesside University.

Dan is currently co-supervising a number of PhD students, and always welcomes expressions of interest to collaborate on research, particularly within his areas of specialism – please feel free to get in touch.  

Research interests

Dan's academic interest is in the interplay between perception and action, within the disciplines of Psychology, Neuroscience and Sport Science.

Dan is currently studying the impact of observing and imaging human movements on both the human brain and motor behaviour. He investigates questions such as ‘How do we integrate a visual description of someone else’s movements into our own motor repertoire, often instantly and even when we do not intend to do so?’, ‘How does this process impact upon our intended actions?’ and ‘To what extent can seeing and imagining movements be useful techniques for those wishing to improve performance in sport, exercise and motor rehabilitation?’. Dan is currently using motion capture and electroencephalography (EEG) measures to address these questions.

Research Interests
• Motor control and learning
• Visuo-motor priming and observational learning
• Motor imagery
• Motor rehabilitation
• Effects of feedback on motor learning
