My teaching and research coheres around the broad areas of sport policy, development and management, where I convene related units of both the Sport and Social Sciences and Sports Performance programmes. I am also Director of Studies for the BA Sport and Social Sciences programme.

My research is concerned with the role that sport adopts as a tool for social and cultural change, in particular within urban communities and youth populations. More specifically, my research explores how participation in sport and physical cultural practices may enhance social inclusion, contribute to the development of citizenship qualities, and may be utilised as an instrument to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour.

I have a vast experience within the wider sports industry having played professional cricket and worked in a variety of sport development roles, both in the UK and in New Zealand. It is these experiences that often form the starting point for my critical exploration of sporting practices.
