Dr Tim Rees
Senior Lecturer


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.
