Terry has a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree in Social Psychology from the University of Kent (UK), a Master of Science degree in Social Psychology from the London School of Economics and Political Science (UK) and a PhD in organizational behaviour/sport from Griffith University (Australia).

Terry’s main area of research expertise is in social science research on doping in sport. She has undertaken research for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Australian Government Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport and the Department of Health (Anti-Doping Research Program) with total research funding in excess of $750,000. 


She has also received multiple internal grants and awards from James Cook University, Griffith University, and the University of Canberra, and a sport leadership grant for women from the Australian Sports Commission (ASC).

Terry is a guest editor of three special issues on the topics of doping in sport (Sport Management Review), crime in sport (European Sport Management Quarterly) and research methodology and sports scholarship (Sport in Society) and serves on the advisory/editorial boards of academic journals. She is a co-author of the recently published book Detecting Doping in Sport (2017, Routledge). 

Terry is engaged in international research collaborations with the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) and the Uruguayan Anti-Doping Agency (ONAU) and with colleagues in Austria, the USA and the UK looking at aspects relating to athletes', coaches and support personnel's perceptions of drugs and other banned performance enhancing substances in sport. 

Terry welcomes new HDR (Honours, Masters and PhD) students in the following areas: organizational behaviour in sport (e.g., organizational commitment), problem behaviour in sport (e.g., doping, sexual harassment), sport and social capital (e.g., volunteering), sport and development (e.g., sport and physical activity in North Queensland communities; sport for promoting equality and cultural engagement), and youth sport.

In her spare time, Terry enjoys running and coaching children. She is a certified athletics coach and a certified fitness trainer for children and young adolescents. She also regularly contributes articles to various sport industry publications.

An Honest Mistake? Establishing `Intention to Dope?

Indicative Funding
The proposed study will involve testing the effectiveness of a forensic anti-doping interview technique that can ultimately be used to establish whether doping occurred intentionally or accidentally. An experimental study will be conducted to establish linguistic criteria that might reliably distinguish between truthful and deceptive behaviour in the context of doping in sport. Drawing on police investigative interviewing frameworks, a forensic anti-doping interview protocol will be tested.
