Research interests

Lecturer in sport psychology with expertise in stress and visual attention

Dr Lee Moore joined the University of Bath in 2017 as a Lecturer in Sport Psychology within the Department for Health.

Before working at the University of Bath, Lee studied for a BSc (Hons) in Exercise and Sports Science, and an MSc in Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter. Subsequently, Lee completed a PhD examining the effects of psychophysiological responses to stress (i.e., challenge and threat states) on motor performance at the University of Exeter. Following his PhD, Lee applied his research expertise to other performance domains including aviation, military, and surgical settings in his role as an Associate Research Fellow at the University of Exeter. Lee was then appointed as Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology at the University of Gloucestershire, where he attained Fellow of the Higher Education Academy status and received accolades such as ‘Best Lecturer’ for the quality of his teaching.

Lee is an experimental psychologist interested in performance variability under stress, and how stress influences cognitive appraisals, emotional and physiological responses, visual attention, and motor performance. Lee also uses eye-tracking technology to explore perceptual-cognitive expertise and the utility of eye movement training to aid the acquisition and refinement of motor skills. Lee has published articles on these topics in leading peer-reviewed journals (e.g., Psychophysiology), and has presented his work at both national and international conferences (e.g., European College of Sports Sciences). Lee has also received funding from the Association for Applied Sport Psychology, and is a member of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences and the Expertise and Skill Acquisition Network.
