Biography

Dr Daniel Lock is a Principal Academic at Bournemouth University in the Department of Sport and Physical Activity. He spent 12 years living in Australia, during which time he completed his Ph.D at the University of Technology, Sydney. Following his Ph.D, he was a Senior Lecturer and Discipline Leader of the Sport group at Griffith University in Brisbane from 2011 - 2015.

Daniel's primary research interests focus on social perception and identity dynamics as they apply to sport consumption and participation. Specifically, his research addresses

(1) the influence of social identity processes on consumer and participant behaviour. In particularly, the complex array of group memberships that shape fan behaviour and attitudes.

(2) social perceptions of organisational legitimacy with a specific emphasis on scrutiny of practices that inhibit or deter audiences from consuming or participating in sport.

He has previously completed research projects with the Australian Sports Commission, New South Wales Department of Sport and Recreation, Australian Football League, Football Federation Australia, and National Rugby League...
