About me

I am a Lecturer in Sport based within the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport. I graduated with an MMath & Statistics from the University of St Andrews in 2012. My interest in sport led me to pursue a PhD in Sport Management at the University of Michigan. Under the supervision of Professor Stefan Szymanski, I graduated in 2017 with a thesis researching econometric approaches to player productivity and performance in professional soccer. In 2018, I returned to Scotland and joined the University of Stirling as a Lecturer and contribute on both the Sport Management and Sport Studies programmes.

I am a member of the S3RG Research Group within the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport with research interests in sports analytics, econometrics, sports policy, competition theory, and eSports.

I coordinate and deliver the module Research Methods for Sport (SPSP039) and Readings in Sports Studies (SPSU9R7). I also teach on other modules and supervise undergraduate and post-graduate dissertations.
