I am a Lecturer in the Sport Policy Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University. My main research interests reside around sports economics and sports management. The research I conduct covers various aspects of women’s football, including competitive balance, uncertainty of outcome and countries’ international sporting success. I have collaborated with UEFA and national football associations to help inform their decision-making regarding the long-term sustainability of the women’s game.

Why study Sports Management?
The industry of sport has become increasingly professionalised and multi-faceted. As such, those working in sport need the necessary skills to face the complexity of this industry across its various sectors. In fact, sport provides divergent political, societal and commercial interests with a common platform to interact. The sport programmes we run at Manchester Metropolitan University are designed for our students to acquire the abilities to apply theoretical concepts into the real world. This will help them avdance their careers and contribute to further expand the industry of sport.
