Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the University of Bath as a lecturer in 2013, having completed my PhD in Human Geography (Exon) and Post-doctoral studies at the Faculty for Health Education and Scoiety at the University of Plymouth. 

My research interest can be broken down into three key strands:

  1. Qualitative methodological innovation (particularly through the use of technology such as video and GPS)
  2. Sport/leisure and space (particulalry with reference to the role of nature and blue space in wellbeing, sustainable tourism environments and urban design for healthy communities)
  3. Technological, mediative and more-than-human engagements with sport, health and leisure environments

My research is underpinned by phenomenological and posthuman theoretical perspectives.

My teaching focuses on:

  • Sociological studies of health/fitness
  • sport/leisure tourism
