Sarah Williams’ research focuses on how imagery can be effectively used in the sport and exercise setting. This includes establishing valid and reliable measures to assess imagery ability and developing techniques to improve imagery’s effectiveness. Dr Williams also combines action observation with imagery use and has more recently started utilising these techniques for rehabilitation. Dr Williams also has an interest in psychological and physiological responses to stress and competition including competitiveness, challenge and threat appraisal, and anxiety.

Dr Williams welcomes enquiries from prospective doctoral researchers in her areas of interest.
