The overall scope of my research agenda lies in the field of sport psychology, with links to the female experience and their emotional wellbeing. The aim of my research is to enhance the experience of female athletes in male dominated domains, by bringing their experiences to the forefront of the discussion, using their own words. I have participated in research projects that have investigated the difference in sport satisfaction between male and female athletes in carrying age ranges. While these studies have been extensive in quantitative studies, taking a mixed method approach to the same questions is where I feel there is a gap in the literature.
My future research agenda revolved around unpicking the master narrative of what it means to be a female athlete. The double standard placed on female athletes as they struggle with the stereotypical definitions of femininity, motherhood and beauty. Furthermore, the differences that female athletes of colour experience in countries like the USA and UK.
