Dr. Adam applies interdisciplinary mixed methods approaches when exploring women athletes’ sport performance, self-attitudes, and health and well-being. Specifically, Dr. Adam focuses on research that explores and describes the role of self-compassion in: i) sport performance (perceptions and outcomes); ii) biopsychosocial experiences of menstrual function-disfunction, and issues related to the Female Athlete Triad and RED-S; iii) eudaimonic well-being; and iv) body-related well-being. Additionally, Dr. Adam compares these experiences and factors between sport types, competition levels, and over time.
