Madeline Doucette is a PhD student in the Clinical Neuropsychology program at the University of Victoria. Her previous Master’s research focused on concussion reporting in athletes and the effects of physical activity and concussion on executive function. Her research interests have shifted in her PhD to focus on the effects of sex hormones and menstrual cycle on elite female athletes’ cognitive functioning throughout a season. Madeline is extremely passionate about studying female soccer players specifically as she has her own personal experience as a university soccer player (UNBC Timberwolves). When she is not in the lab, she enjoys reading at the beach, yoga and tennis.
