Personal profile

Personal profile

James is Associate Professor of Sport and Exercise Science at Solent University, though despite his title sees himself as a 'postdisciplinary' academic. His research experience is varied across a range of topics with a focus on problem solving across domains; as such he has expertise in a wide range of research methodologies, study designs, and both quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method approaches to data analysis and synthesis. James has led across numerous large research projects both within academia and the public and private sectors, published and provided invited talks across a range of areas, served on a number of national expert panels and working groups, is an editor and reviewer for several journals, and has been involved in the founding of several academic societies. He has a keen interest in philosophy, methodology, and methods as well as open research and meta-science. His current primary substantive topic area of research is 'effort' and he shares his work on this via the Horme Lab website. Currently he supervises PhD students, and teaches research methods and leads on the dissertation module for our undergraduate courses.
