Jake's research interests lie in better understanding the problematic social and interactional nature of sports coaching. In particular, his research to date has focused on how coaches can more realistically use their agency to develop athletes in ways that are sensitive to both the individual and the wider social context. A related strand of research focuses on how the theoretical content and pedagogical approaches used in coach education influence its relevance and impact for the coaches it aims to educate. Coupled with his research profile, Jake's history as successful a sports coach and coach educator have given him a platform to influence coach education programmes both internal and external to Cardiff Metropolitan University.
