Research overview

My research focuses on labour market and personnel issues in the world of professional sports. Current work explores the relationship between race and coaching hierarchy in the NFL, and in particular the role of the league’s Affirmative Action policy, the ‘Rooney Rule’. Other work includes studying task allocation and fatigue amongst baseball pitchers.
