Dr. Ross is an Assistant Professor of Kinesiology at Western University in London, Ontario. His current research focuses on the intersection of sport and human rights, particularly how sporting mega events disproportionately marginalize already vulnerable populations in host cities. His most recent work has appeared in the Journal of Sport and Social Issues and Sport History Review. Ross was Dr. Colin Howell’s final graduate student at Saint Mary’s University, earning his MA in History in 2008. He will be delivering the introduction to the inaugural Dr. Colin Howell Distinguished Lecture at this year’s Hockey Conference.
