Dr Victoria Warburton joined EDU in 2008 as a Lecturer in Psychology of Physical Education and Sport following the completion of her PhD in Sport & Exercise Psychology at Loughborough University. She is a Chartered Psychologist of the British Psychological Society. 

Her primary research focus is on understanding the dynamics of motivation through examining the antecedents, consequences, and development of motivation, primarily in physical education and sport contexts. Her current research interests centre on implicit theories of ability; their development and temporal patterns, and the effects of an entity theory of ability.

Victoria’s research has been published in international journals and she has presented her work at both national and international conferences. She reviews for a number of leading journals across both the sport and educational psychology areas. She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the North American Society for the Psychology of Sport and Physical Activity. From 2012-2015 she was a member of the steering committee of the Theories of Motivation Special Interest Group (ISBNPA) 2012-2015. She is currently collaborating on a number of projects with colleagues in EDU and from Loughborough University.

Since joining EDU Victoria has served as the Course Director  for the undergraduate physical education programmes (2009-2016) and has taught and supervised students on undergraduate, postgraduate taught, and doctoral programmes.
