Biography Dr Luke Jones' main area of expertise involves problematising entrenched coaching knowledge and practices.

He was awarded his BA and MA degrees by the University of Bath, before completing his PhD at the University of Alberta.

For his PhD, Dr Jones utilised the disciplinary analysis of Michel Foucault to explore enforced retirement from football in a thesis entitled The End of the Road?: Discipline and retirement in British professional and semi-professional football.

His current research uses Foucauldian theory to investigate the unintended consequences of the ubiquitous use of surveillance technologies in professional football.
