About me

I am a sport economist.

My PhD, completed in 2009 at the University of Caen (Normandy, France), is entitled 'Uncertainty of outcome, key success factor of professional sport spectacle. Competitive intensity of leagues: Between measured impacts and perceived effects'.

It was awarded by the 2009 UCPF (Union of the French Professional Football Clubs) Research Grand Prix.

I taught at the Universities of Rouen, Caen and Paris-Sud from 2006 to 2011 then became Lecturer at the University of Poitiers for two years before being Lecturer at the University of Stirling from 2013.

I am co-ordinator of the modules SPSP039 Research Methods for Sport (MSc Psychology of Sport, Sports Coaching and Sport Management) and SPSP059 Sport Management Challenges (MSc Sport Management), and the half-module SPSU9R7 Readings in Sports Economics (4th Year).

Previously, I was the Social Media then Internationalisation Champion of the former School of Sport.

Since 2016, I am the Director of the MSc Sport Management.

I am also member of the International Society for Sports Sciences in the Arab World (I3SAW) and tutor in the Executive Master in Sport Organisation Management (MEMOS) with the Olympic Solidarity.
