Dr Rachael Bullingham

I am passionate about both teaching and research. My interest is in both areas of social issues and Physical Education. I researched in areas regarding homophobia and concussion in sport. Chevron icon


Previously I have taught Physical Education in Secondary Schools before moving into HE. My PhD was investigating homophobia within female team sports. I still research aspects of homophobia both in sport and educational settings. I have also published on concussion in sport.
