Born and educated in London, Luke has been involved in sport professionally for over a decade. A sports enthusiast in every respect, from playing to watching to debating issues as disparate as gender-equality to anti-doping, Luke started coaching tennis at the age of 25, since when he has built on his academic background in psychology to specialise in sport and exercise science. Luke has more recently worked as a consultant in sport psychology and a lecturer in sports science in further education.
Luke is currently the Research Officer for The Sports Think Tank for whom he manages the website content and social media output. In addition to planning and delivering events based around stimulating policy debate in the sport sector, Luke has written articles for The Sports Think Tank’s website on sport, physical activity and the impact of policy on sport development in the UK and abroad. Luke has also published articles for the International Tennis Federation’s Coaching and Sports Science Review and the in-house magazine of the British Psychological Society, The Psychologist.
