Other Relevant Experience

I have a degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of Oxford and helped to found the kids classes at Cambridge Kung Fu whilst I was completing my PhD in psychology at the University of Cambridge. I have carried out post-doctoral research in the area of stress and anxiety and as a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of East Anglia I lead the Emotion and Cognition Group. I have recently started working full time at Cambridge Kung Fu where I can pursue my interest in understanding how mindful movement (for example through martial arts practice) can be beneficial to us psychologically (for example reducing stress and increasing emotional resilience).
