Announced yesterday, Dylan Poulus will step down as the QUT Esports Coordinator, however, will continue to sit on the QUT advisory board, and manage the QUT Tigers OCS Team.
Commenting on his role change, Poulus said, “Whilst building QUT esports I have been working behind the scenes on completing a psychology degree and working towards starting a PhD at QUT. On the 8th of February I was lucky enough to move into a PhD and receive a scholarship.
My plan is to receive one of the first PhDs in esports performance. My research is looking at the role of stress, coping, and mental toughness in esports performance. We all know that what happens in our heads determines how well we play, and I want to help us all understand what makes us perform better as esport competitors.”
The QUT Esports program will continue with Emily Rosemond, Nick Lynch, and Jacob Argent to stay on and ensure QUT stays as an industry leader for Australian university esports.
Poulus continued, “To everyone who helped us build QUT esports over the last few years, I cannot thank you enough. It’s the amazing community of staff and students at QUT esports that has made and will continue to make the program so special. You all know who you are, thank you so much!
I am determined to continue contributing to esports as both an advisor to the program and researcher!”
