Dr Tim Rees
Tim’s primary research interest is the social psychology of performance, with a specific focus on social support, attributions, social identity, and stereotype threat. More recently, supported by a £100,000 research grant from UK Sport, he has been engaged in understanding the identification and development of talent in the lead up to the 2016 Olympic Games and beyond. His work is also currently supported by two Economic and Social Research Council CASE studentships (totalling £162,000). One of these studentships is with the England and Wales Cricket Board, focusing on player profiling; the other, with Active Devon, entails a large-scale evaluation of a physical activity intervention for a rural population. He has published in all the major sport psychology journals, and his research has featured on television and radio and in all major printed media. He is a BPS Chartered Psychologist, BASES accredited Sport and Exercise Scientist, and an HEA Accredited University Lecturer. He sits on the Editorial Boards of Psychology of Sport and Exercise and Sport and Exercise Psychology Review, and has been invited to present to the British Psychological Society, the European College of Sport Science, the European Association of Social Psychology, and the Association of Researchers in Physical Activity and Sport. Alongside his research, teaching, and management roles, he has over 15 years experience providing psychological support to various national/international level performers in a variety of individual and team sports, including canoe slalom, equestrianism, football, high-board diving, ice dance, motorsport, and rugby.
