Leisure or livelihood: Team

Malawi & Glasgow

Dr Chris Bunn

Chris is a Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Glasgow and a Senior Researcher at the Malawian Epidemiology and Intervention Research Unit. He is a co-investigator on the British Academy funded Leisure or Livelihoods project and leads the research team in Malawi.

His work focuses on both gambling and long-term health conditions. He is particularly interested in the intersection between sports sponsorship and gambling harm, how widespread and evolving digital technologies have enabled a new global gambling landscape to emerge and approaches to reducing gambling-related harms. 

Chris is a commissioner on the Lancet Public Health Commission on Gambling, a member of Gambling Research Glasgow and a founding convenor of Gambling Realities Africa.
