As an active and published researcher, Jamie is interested in the psychophysiological reactions to a pressured situation (e.g., sporting performance, exams, presentations, interviews), and how we can use research findings to help develop better coping strategies. As part of Jamie’s doctoral research, he used psychophysiological testing methods in the laboratory to examine how individuals respond to stressful situations. Specifically, exploring how social factors can influence the stress response. Jamie is also currently co-supervising two PhD students at an external institution.
