Personal profile

Biography

I joined Northumbria in 2014 while finishing my doctoral studies. I am fascinated by the relational, (micro)political and emotional complexities of sports work, which is reflected in my ongoing scholarship and supervisory activity. My research explores how networks of social relations influence the thoughts, feelings and (inter)actions of sport professionals, and how sense is made of experiences, relationships and the self. As a member of the Informing Practice and Policy research group, my aim is to critically examine the opportunities and challenges associated with professional practice in order to inform and beneficially impact those leading, working and participating in sport and exercise. Alongside my academic work, I have been a rugby coach, coach educator and mentor over the last 18 years.

Research interests

My research interests focus on the relational, (micro)political and emotional complexities of sports work. My ongoing and published work seeks to explore how networks of social relations influence the thoughts, feelings and (inter)actions of sport professionals, and how sense is made of experiences, relationships and the self. Similarly, I am fortunate to supervise an amazing group of PhD and Masters students whose sociological research examines professional practice, interactions and identities across a diverse range of sport settings.
