Piotr Piasecki

Doctoral Student

Piotr Piasecki is a doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program at Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. He aspires to influence the realm of sport and performance psychology from a scientist-practitioner framework. He conducts research in the Performance Recovery & Optimization (PRO) Center alongside Edson Filho.

Piotr’s research interests lie within the themes of performance optimization and recovery at the individual and group level across different performing contexts. This includes the pursuit of scientific inquiry around the topics of team dynamics, Individual Zones of Optimal Functioning (IZOF), Shared Zones of Optimal Functioning (SZOF), contemplative science, and exploring the process of cultivating human flourishing. His work is examined from a biopsychosocial perspective, which includes the implementation of psychophysiological measurements and examining socio-environmental factors.

From the practitioner side, Piotr facilitates evidence-based services for performance enhancement and mental well-being. His philosophy is to be a source of support for the performers that he works for and to provide scaffolding to rebuild their mental capacity to perform at their highest level.
