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.more
