My main research areas relate to performance-enhancing strategies in elite sport, elite sporting lives and working conditions, doping and anti-doping policy. As such, health and prevention are central themes in my research. I have also worked in other areas such as sponsor networks associated with professional sport clubs and volunteerism at sport events. Key research themes are: factors which impact on elite athletes’ decision to use doping or not, as well as identifying grey zones, potential dilemmas and risk and protective factors among elite athletes; key elements of current anti-doping policy (e.g., the whereabouts-reporting system, the Therapeutic Use Exemption system, the Prohibited List of Substances, doping controls and sanctions) and their impact on elite athletes’ everyday lives, as well as how athletes perceive key policy elements and their implementation.
