In addition to her professional work, Tansin has dedicated herself to the sport of artistic gymnastics for over twenty years, coaching, judging internationally and as a member of the British Gymnastics Association’s National Technical Committee. Competitive and educational gymnastics have been a large part of her life since childhood and publications of a book on primary gymnastics and articles in professional journals over recent years reflect this ongoing commitment. In 2008, Tansin won a Leverhulme Research Fellowship  to undertake research at Sultan Qaboos University, Oman. This led to further international opportunities in her research area of increasing opportunities for Muslim girls and women in PE and sport.
