Hi there, my name is Jacquie Tran. I’m an Australian sport scientist, with interests across research and applied sport domains. I am an unabashed generalist. My expertise areas including athlete preparation, performance assessment, load monitoring, athlete well-being, statistical modelling, data visualisation, and sports technology. I am currently working as a Research Fellow in a joint appointment with Deakin University and the Geelong Cats Football Club (Australian Football League).
This blog (formerly known as ‘The High Performance PhD’) began as a place for me to reflect on my experiences as I progressed through the victories and trials of completing my PhD in applied sports physiology. Having graduated in 2015, I decided to rename the blog to ‘Hidden Labours’. My intent now is to share my observations and experiences working as a sport scientist in elite and sub-elite sport. Specifically, I hope this blog helps to illuminate some of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into supporting athletes so they can develop and perform at their best.
If you’d like to know more about me, I am all over the internets. A good place to start is my website: http://www.jacquietran.com. Want to get in touch with me directly? Send me an email – jac [at] jacquietran.com – or hit me up on Twitter (@jacquietran).
