Robbie joined the SIRC team in October 2014 after graduating with a first class honours degree in Sport Business Management from Sheffield Hallam University in 2013. During his time at university he has worked on several projects for SIRC notably conducting fieldwork at major sporting events, including The Open Championship in 2012 at Lytham St Annes and in 2013 at Muirfield and The Ricoh Women's Open at St Andrews in 2013.
Robbie completed his final year research project 'Stability in English cricket: A study assessing the impact of central contracts on the stability and performance of the England Test team' under the supervision of Senior Research Fellow Steve Bullough. This research paper was subsequently accepted as peer reviewed journal paper. Since starting full time at SIRC, Robbie has worked on a range of different research projects for a number of clients, namely Ryder Cup Europe, RFU, Youth Sport Trust, The R&A and Sport England. Robbie has recently entered the SHU Student Mentor Scheme and will be providing support to two students throughout the 2015/2016 academic year.
