Research


I have a keen interest in institutional rules and norms, and in particular, the processes, structures and agency that goes into building, maintaining, disrupting, or tearing down such practices. This includes two research foci. The first examines institutional actors’ lived experiences with current institutional practices. Relatedly, I also study how actors can influence and change institutional rules and norms. From a practical perspective, my aim is to illustrate how institutional challengers can navigate the institutional landscape to be an effective change agent. I have had papers published in the following journals: Journal of Management Inquiry, Sport Management Review, African Journal of Business and Economic Research, International Review for the Sociology of SportInternational Journal of Sport Management, Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics, and International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing, among others.

I am currently working on papers addressing the following:

  1. Social movements/activism
  2. Social responsibility
