Vision Statement

My key research areas are in sport and digital media. I am currently researching on digital piracy in sport, looking at production and consumpption of sport piracy. Findings may hold wider implications for anti-piracy campaigners and broadcast rights holders in handling the (latent) demand of sport broadcast consumption. On a related note, I am also looking at the consumer behaviour of counterfeit sports products, and the impact it potentially has on the sports industry.
