Simon is a passionate teacher and researcher with specialisms in human geography, mobilities, physical cultures, and research and academic skills support.

At BCU, I am a Senior Lecturer in the HELS Academic Development Department, providing academic, research and publishing skills support to students and staff in the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences.

His research draws on his background in human geography but operates at the intersection of mobility studies, social and cultural geography, physical cultural studies, and qualitative research in sport, exercise and health. His research concerns everyday active practices: the ways in which they happen, how they change, and what they can tell us about societies and spaces. Simon is currently researching run-commuting, post-collision cycling practices and running during social distancing.

Public engagement is also an important part of Simon’s academic practice, in which he seeks to communicate and share his research with relevant organisations and the wider public in order to improve, educate and entertain.
