Ellen is on placement year with us from Loughborough University where she studies Sport and Exercise Science. As a keen hockey player, Ellen is leading the analysis for Durham University Hockey performance teams this year. This includes the videoing, coding and presentation of statistics to the lead coach for every game. She also helps out at the BUCS Super Rugby Fixtures. Ellen is really looking forward to helping the teams progress through the BUCS Cup and hopefully getting a BUCS final out of all the hard work! GO TEAM DURHAM!

Tom Whitley

Tom is on placement year with us from Loughborough University where he studies Sport and Exercise Psychology, after growing up in East Yorkshire. His main sporting interests are cricket and football (an area where he plans to produce his placement task) as well as being a keen runner. Working across multi-sports the placement has offered him an opportunity to learn some new sports such as lacrosse, basketball and American football. It has also allowed him to develop his knowledge of more traditional sports such as Hockey and Rugby Union, where he regularly assists in recording and analysing matches. He looks forward to the cricket season kicking off in March/April.
