Kevin’s main research interests lie within the areas of evidence, and realist collaborative approaches to evaluation with practitioners in sport for development and public health. This formed the main focus of his PhD work that involved developing a suitable monitoring and evaluation framework with students and practitioners within the Coaching Innovation Programme at Solent University. Kevin has published with Dr Andrew Adams at Bournemouth University in this subject area.
Additional research interests focus around the areas of student employability and volunteering. Kevin is a key member of the research and innovation team at Solent and is involved in a variety of evaluation briefs, working with local authorities and national charities with Professor Steven Henderson. Additionally, Kevin collaborates with academics at other UK and international institutions around evaluation. In particular Kevin was involved with Dr Iain Lindsey from Durham University, in the evaluation of the Saints for Sport programme at Southampton Football Club.
In terms of external work, Kevin has carried out external examining with Marjon University in their sport development programmes in course validation and programme review. He has also worked with the University of Gloucester and Leeds Trinity University.
