  • Why do we like to touch some objects more than others?

    Interactive Objects are designed to behave in particular ways when they are handled – for example gaming controllers that vibrate, or children’s toys that light up or make noise when squeezed. When interactive objects are under development, it is important for designers to understand how people will react to them, and what might make objects more aesthetically appealing. This is where psychology comes in.

  • What Happens To Wellbeing When Athletes Retire?

    The majority of athletes experience some form of difficulty associated with their transition to retirement, including decreased physical health, loss of self-worth, and difficulties finding and adapting to new occupational roles. Despite these challenges, there has been little work on evaluating support that may help athletes to navigate retirement. The objective of this research project was to develop and pilot an intervention to support elite athletes as they transition out of elite sport.
