I am the course leader of BSc (Hons) Sport Management (Top-Up) and BSc (Hons) Sport Coaching (Top-Up) degrees in the University of Portsmouth. In addition to these, I am a Lecturer in Sport Management.

My research focuses on two key aspects of sport economics: competitive balance and holistic performance measurement of teams, while my PhD is focused on development of a quantitative model to measure governance of professional sport clubs.


I have graduated in BSc (Hons) Sport Business Management with a first class degree from Sheffield Hallam University in 2020. Currently, I am pursuing my doctoral studies exploring governance in professional football clubs in Asia, with the aim of developing a quantifiable model of sport governance from Sheffield Hallam University.
