Research Interests

My prime research interests relate to ethics, pleasure and activism within the micro-context of self-governing communities and the broader context of consumer culture. I am also interested in processes of learning within self-governing communities and, in particular, non-traditional modes of learning. I initially developed these interests in the context of sport, namely Ultimate Frisbee, and have started to develop parallel research interests in relation to health and digital technologies.

I am a standing member of the Waikato District Health Board's Virtual Health Advisory Group, and National Coach Educator for New Zealand Ultimate.
