Research Interests

Laurie’s principal research interest is investigating effective anti-doping education, with a focus on coaches and other athlete support personnel. Her Recent doctoral research utilised a logic model approach to inform anti-doping education for coaches by exploring coaches’ perceived roles in anti-doping efforts, as well as the relevance of anti-doping education to coaches. Building on this, Laurie is currently undertaking a project in collaboration with the International Council for Coaching Excellence and the World Anti-Doping Agency to provide guidance for the development of a sustainable and cooperative international anti-doping training programme for high performance coaches. Laurie has previously worked on three projects commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, as well as several projects outside of the doping-related research field funded by commercial or sports organisations (including the Rugby Football League and the Football Association).
