Research / Publications
The focus of my research interests relates to sociological issues within sport coaching, most notably that of coaches’ interaction and their everyday endeavours. I am involved in the sport coaching research group at the Cardiff School of Sport, and currently research the everyday interactions of coaches through an ethnomethodological perspective. I am interested in a range of qualitative research methods as ways of better understanding coaching.
