About Emma

Emma began her journey with a B.A in Psychology with the aim of becoming a clinical psychologist until by chance her lecturer asked why she wasn’t considering sports psychology seeing as she was so involved in sport …and so it began. Emma went on to gain a MSc in Sports & Exercise Psychology from Bangor University Wales and is currently a PhD candidate at Brunel University London researching decision making in Gaelic football. She has worked with amateur and elite athletes from all sports for the past ten years. Emma is also the founder and CEO of Mí Analytics a performance analysis software that is the first of its kind analysing team sports using cluster analysis. Emma has also been an intercounty performance analysis for several years. Emma’s main love is Gaelic Football which she has played for over 20 years collecting junior, intermediate, and senior medals

Emma’s Philosophy to Teaching

I learned first-hand the influence and guidance good lectures can offer, I hope to be that type of lecture for the students at Portobello. I believe in guiding the individual holistically not just the academic student.
