Chris Rowley has an academic background in sport psychology, having previously completed undergraduate and masters degrees in sport psychology at the University of Central Lancashire, before then completing a PhD in Applied Sport Psychology at the University of Hull which was awarded in 2014. Chris joined Leeds Trinity University in 2015 as the programme leader for the BSc (Hons) Sport Psychology Degree, in addition to teaching across a number of sport related modules. Chris is also an Associate Lecturer with the Open University for module E313, and is a chartered member of the British Psychological Society’s Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology. Chris has previously worked at the University Centre - North Lindsey College, and The University of Hull, in addition to undertaking applied work with professional football and rugby league academy teams.
Chris' research interests centre on reflective practice, ethnographic methods of enquiry, and the recognition of contextual factors which can affect practice within the applied sport psychology setting. In addition to this Chris is also interested in how literature from outside of the psychology domain (e.g. sports coaching, education, and sociology) can help underpin practice and pedagogy within the sport psychology profession. At present Chris is currently collaborating with Prof. David Gilbourne, as well as Dr. Lee Nelson and Prof. Paul Potrac from Edge Hill University.
