I graduated with a Bachelor of Science honours degree (Sports
Science) from Liverpool John Moores University (formerly Liverpool
Polytechnic) before completing a Master of Science degree (Computer
Science) at Bradford University. Following a two year hiatus from
academe I attended the University of British Columbia to resume my
earlier research in sports performance. I consequently graduated with a
Master of Physical Education degree before undertaking further study at
the same institution. The field of enquiry for my Ph.D. changed tack to
centre on the control of action (i.e., motor control) in general and on
the stopping of an unfolding action (i.e., inhibitory motor control) in
particular. Following my Ph.D. I assumed a research post at San
Francisco State University for one year before accepting a faculty
appointment at the University of New Brunswick.
