Biography

Dr Jordan Bakhsh is an Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Management and a member of the Centre for Sport Research (CSR) in the Institute of Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN). His research focuses on advancing the social outcomes of organising practices. Jordan's work primarily investigates how mega-events are organised as social interventions to create social benefit, social value, and social change for society and its members. Jordan's research has been published in the leading sport management journals, Sport Management ReviewJournal of Sport Management, and European Sport Management Quarterly, and he is an editorial board member of the leading event management journal, Event Management.

Jordan has collaborated with over 50 sport organisations around the world, including FIFA, Sport Canada, Football Australia, New Zealand Football, and the AFL. These partnerships have produced transformational knowledge to advance how event organising can maximise social benefits and mitigate social costs. Specifically, his research has informed organisation and governement co-hosting strategies, bid decision-making, and funding policies for mega-events. His current postdoctoral work focuses on the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup and aims to examine the event's organising strategies, organisational legacies, and social outcomes for residents.
