Here you can find details of the projects I’m currently working on, along with some of the projects I’ve worked on in the past.

If you are a prospective student interested in working with me, please read below to get an idea of the areas where I’m currently working and follow this link to see some of the projects that I’ve previously supervised or am interested in supervising.


Current Projects

Remote exercise platforms

I’m interested in people’s use of connected remote exercise platforms (such as Zwift, Peloton or TrainerRoad), and particularly how users build communities around these platforms for motivation and support.

Choosing to stop tracking exercise

This research project comes under a larger umbrella of research examining the less-positive outcomes from use of “quantified self” and personal informatics systems. Following Strava’s May 2020 announcement to remove certain functionality from the free membership tier, and movements such as “#NoGarminNoRules”, we have witnessed increasing negative sentiment towards the notion of tracking sports and leisure, cycling and running. Here, I am interested in better understanding people’s prior use of tracking systems and platforms and examining their reasons for distancing themselves from tracking practices.
