My research focuses on the development of high-performance sport in general in the latter half of the twentieth century, and the development of systematic performance-enhancing substance use as a reflection of that form of sport, especially in the Olympic movement. I am also interested in the original development of anti-doping rules and policies in the post-WWII period.
