Biography

Richard's research interests focus on sport tourism, Olympic studies, the impacts and legacies of international sport events, crisis and disaster management at sports events, volunteering at mega sports events, and sport ethnography. His work has explored a series of Olympic related research themes ranging from resident perception studies to Olympic tourism. Richard's other research interests are linked to the experiences of endurance athletes, most notably distance runners.

Richard has previously received major research grant from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to develop research linked to sport tourism and sports events, and completed an international collaborative project funded by the International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s Olympic Studies Centre (OSC) on their Advanced Olympic Research Grant Programme evaluating the volunteering infrastructure legacy of the Sydney 2000 and London 2012 Games. In 2016 Richard was also the Principal Investigator (PI) on a £425,000 collaborative international football coaching project in China...
