His military and sport research centres on understanding cultural influences on negative behaviours, and consequently, how these might be changed.

Recent publications in Armed Forces and Society – “The Military Scandal: Its Definition, Dynamics, and Significance” (2019) and “Military Loyalty as a Moral Emotion” (2019).
