Dr Adam Coussens

I'm currently a lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology at Newcastle University, in the School of Biomedical Sciences. I am passionate about sport, and enjoy playing, discussing, and watching a number of different sports, including football, cycling, running, and golf. My research interests predominantly involve the role of social support, in a performance and psychological wellbeing context, following on from my PhD completed at the University of Exeter, in 2015. I subsequently went on to be a Visiting Lecturer at Roehampton University, where I led MSc modules in Sport and Exercise Psychology. Between 2015 - 2018, I was employed as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Lincoln, which involved, leading undergraduate and postgraduate modules, and being the Research Impact Champion for the School of Sport and Exercise Science, a PhD Supervisor, and the acting lead for the MTough research group.
