Biography

I come from a strong academic background, having completed my first degree in sport science and undertaking a master's programme in international sport and development from Southampton Solent University.

Having worked as a research assistant at Solent University on various projects such as the Kicking Aids Out Jamaica research, where I led the research team to (re)design an effective sporting focused framework for KAO Jamaica's programme. I most recently have been appointed as the lead researcher in the joint venture project between Solent University, Sport Hampshire and Isle of Wight and Create Development to measure the impact of the Family FUNS programme developed by Create Development.

Furthermore, I was recently selected amongst a handful of researchers and practitioners to attend the sport event management short course programme at the University of Tsukuba, Tokyo, to gain further theoretical and practical understanding into the planning and organisation of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympics.
