Graham’s research interests center on human resource management and organizational behavior. His current research project examines how fathers who are coaches balance their work and family roles. The project has a special focus on the individual and the organizational sides of the issue. The research questions include focuses on how things like organizational structures, cultures, and practices impact individuals. This research fits under the broader umbrella of human resource management and organizational behavior, but also addresses broader cultural issues about changes in fathering expectations, family functionality, youth development, and college and youth sport policies.
