The focus of my research interests relate to the everyday complexities and affairs of coaches, particularly to gain 'influence' and 'control' of others. To date, my work has drawn upon ethnomethodology to explore coaches' everyday interactions and observations. I am interested in a range of qualitative research methods as ways of better understanding coaching.
