Emma Quinn

BSc, MSc, PhD (ongoing)

Hello! My name is Emma and I’m a doctoral researcher in menstruation.


Following my experiences of battling difficult menstruation and the performance expectations of competitive sport, I developed an interest in the topic of menstruation in sport. During my BSc and MSc in sport psychology I researched athletes’ experiences of menstruating in the culture of elite sport, and IDT practitioners’ experiences of menstrual support provision.

Alongside my PhD that focuses on menstruation, mental health, and stigma, I work with support staff and athletes to improve awareness and understanding of the menstrual cycle and develop discussions about menstrual support in sport.

If you’ve had difficult experiences of menstruation in sport, want to learn more, or have any questions please reach out and we can start a conversation.
