Biography

Lucie graduated from the University of Surrey with a BSc in Psychology in 2013 and from Trinity Laban with an MSc in Dance Science in 2014.

Within dance science, Lucie’s main interest is in dance psychology teaching and research, and she is currently undertaking MPhil/PhD study at Trinity Laban. Lucie’s research is funded by the Leverhulme Trust as part of a large-scale investigation of the relationship between imagery and creativity in contemporary dance. Lucie’s PhD is a mixed methods investigation of the meaning and assessment of creativity in contemporary dance. She is examining the extent to which dance is understood within the creativity framework found in the psychology literature. Alongside the use of standardised creativity measures, she is developing a dance-specific measure of creativity. On completion of her PhD, Lucie will be eligible for Chartered Psychologist Membership of the British Psychological Society. As a trainee, Lucie lectures and runs performance psychology workshops for dancers. Lucie is a founding member of the Brazil-UK Dance Science Network, sponsored by the British Council.
