    Dr. Kee is currently the Assistant Dean, Higher Degrees by Research at the National Institute of Education, Singapore. He teaches sport psychology, motor control and learning, and research methods as a faculty member in the PESS Academic Group. He also serves as Co-Editor of the International Journal of Sport Psychology from September 2017 http://ijsp-online.com/.

    His main research focus is on the applicability of mindfulness in human movements. Secondary research areas involve issues related to human peak functioning, such as motivation, gratitude, burnout, time perspective and flow. His inclination for interdisciplinary approach to research was developed during his stint at the Sante Fe Complex Systems Summer School in 2008.
