Mustafa Sarkar

Dr Mustafa Sarkar is a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology at Nottingham Trent University in the UK and teaches across the undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. He holds a PhD from Loughborough University, investigating the assessment of psychological resilience in sport performers. Before joining NTU, Mustafa was a Research Fellow in Sport, Exercise, and Wellbeing at the University of Gloucestershire. His research focuses on the psychology of sporting excellence and its application to other high performance domains (e.g., business). His work addresses how high achievers thrive on pressure and deliver sustained success, and mainly clusters around the areas of psychological, team, and organisational resilience. Mustafa has worked closely with sport teams and organisations on creating environments and cultures to develop resilience including the United States and Netherlands Olympic Committees, the Football Association, the Premier League, Hockey Wales, Cricket Scotland, and Agility Team GB.
