Personal profile


I research and teach sport management and social justice at Ulster University. I have a long-standing research interest in the engagement of disabled people and aging populations in and through sport and leisure.  In particular my research examines the supply side barriers that reinforce inequality and inaccessibility for disabled people and aging populations, with an aim to provide co-produced and pragmatic solutions to address these.  

I am the academic lead for the School of Sport on the MSc Sport Management and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
