Stephen J. Galetti Collegiate Professor of Sport Management. BA (Oxon) MSc, PhD (London). formerly Professor of Economics at London Business School, Imperial Business School and Cass Business School
My main interest is in the business and economics of sports. This includes (a) professional sports leagues and championships, how they are run, the implications of specific league rules, the relationship between financial and sporting outcomes, antitrust implications; (b) amateur sport, the relationship between physical activity, sport and wellbeing, the role of government in the promotion of sport. I have strong interest in history and sociology underpinning the economic assumptions surrounding professional sports. I'm also interested in ways in which sports can be used as laboratories for studying human behavior.
