I am a sport management researcher and educator who aims to understand how sport organisations and events create positive social impacts on local communities. To advance this research agenda, I have examined a range of sport events across the world, including the Tokyo 1964 Olympic Games; professional sport events in Australia, USA, and Japan; and charity-affiliated sport events in Australia and Cambodia. To date, I have published over 30 articles in peer-reviewed academic journals, and I currently serve as an Editorial Board Member for two leading sport management journals: Sport Management Review and the Journal of Sport Management. My teaching interests include management of sport organisations, sport governance, corporate social responsibility, and research methods.
