The MTOUGH team would like to congratulate Lizzie Stamp on successfully defending her PhD thesis this summer. Lizzie received a full-time studentship in 2013 and during her time at Lincoln has played an active role in the MTOUGH research group and the School of Sport and Exercise Science. Lizzie has published two papers from her thesis already and is aiming to publish more over the coming year. Her thesis entitled “The Relationship between Mental Toughness and Health-Related Lifestyle” was approved last week following minor corrections. Lizzie is taking up a research role at the University of Leeds and we wish her all the best for the future and offer sincere thanks for her contribution over the last four years. I know that Lizzie is extremely grateful for the support of her supervisory team, which comprised primarily of Dr Lee Crust and Dr Christian Swann, but additional thanks are also necessary for the help and support offered by Professor David Mullineaux and Professor Jacquelyn Allen-Collinson.
