My name is Kamil Celoch. I am a member of Dr. Bigliassi’s Psychophysiology Lab. Between 2021 and 2023, I served as a Communications Director for the Society for Sports Neuroscience (formerly known as the Society for NeuroSports). In 2022, I spent 6 months as a visiting research scholar with the Department of Neuroscience and Psychology at Nova Southeastern University. Prior to joining the Florida International University’s Ph.D. Kinesiology Program, I had the good fortune of working across a diverse range of fields, including academia, fitness, foreign affairs, and conference interpreting.
My interdisciplinary educational background spans 4 EU countries and includes a European Commission co-funded MA degree from the University of Central Lancashire and an Advanced M.S. from Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at Vrije Universiteit Brussel. In 2011, I received the best dissertation award from Manchester Metropolitan University, Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care, and Combined Honors for my work on Stress Management in Novice and Expert Conference Interpreters. My current research interests include but are not limited to, emotion regulation in the context of sports and exercise psychophysiology, especially as it pertains to exhaustive modalities performed at a high intensity.
In 2017 and 2018, I was a part of the national championship-winning team with Brussels Black Angels in the Belgian American Football League (BAFL Elite Division). In 2017, I became the first sports performance coach in Belgium to earn the Certified Physical Preparation Specialist (CPPS) qualification (hosted at the WWE Performance Center, Orlando, FL). I am also certified through the Society for Sports Neuroscience (CSNS) and the International Society of Sports Nutrition (CISSN).
