Within my broad scholarly interests in sport management are my specific research endeavors often related to the areas of sport consumer behavior and sport communication. For instance, my research interests focus on how fans respond to mediated sports and the emotional factors that are derived from sport-related stimuli which influence sports fans’ cognition and behavior. This line of inquiry draws on theories and concepts from literature in marketing, psychology, management, and communication and applies them to the sport industry. Most of my studies involve experimental or quasi-experimental examinations of sport media audiences and consumers.
