My research is focused on the diverse geographies of industry and of their (de)globalization: most recently examining the industrialization and monetization of sport (hockey’s Global Player Production Networks being the chosen case study); the geographical construction of technology (especially bicycles). The next stage of this research is to examine the cycling technologies being developed for persons with disability, their location, and the methods of production; and the performance of the economy in various geographical settings, including sports events and trade shows.
