I was partially supported by a CIE International development grant to travel to Perth, Australia for one month in 2016. Dr. Timothy Fairchild, a colleague and friend, invited me to visit the Department of Psychology and Exercise Science at Murdoch University in the hopes of establishing a research relationship with the University of New Hampshire Department of Kinesiology. Over the last several years, I have had students earn Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) from the Hamel Center and have always wanted to give students an opportunity to apply for SURF abroad grants or to study abroad while conducting research within our field. The idea of international collaboration and the opportunity to leave the New England winter to work on the coast of Western Australia made the decision to travel very simple.
