Curriculum Vitae

My research explores issues of sport governance and policy. I am particularly interested in the interaction between sport governance organizations and governmental policymakers, both domestically and transnationally. Fundamentally, my work is concerned with explaining processes of power, authority, and regulation in sport contexts, and using this knowledge to develop more just and humane models of sport governance.
