Personal profile


Professor Cathy Craig’s research over the last 20 years has allowed her to develop a deep understanding of why we move, how we move and why sometimes we can’t.  As a perception and action psychologist, she was the first to use immersive, interactive virtual reality to develop a deep understanding of decision-making in sport. She has worked with elite athletes but also with older adults and people with Parkinson’s. As CEO and founder of INCISIV, she is translating her scientific know-how into technological solutions that quantify decision-making but also offer new ways to train smarter whilst protecting players from injury.
