I am a journalism researcher and lecturer, currently teaching into the 'Politics, Economies & Communication' contextual strand.
My research considers the ways journalism is changing as it moves away from legacy forms and is increasingly produced for online consumption. I am particularly interested in the ways journalists and publications navigate the associated shifts in professional practices and identities. My PhD thesis examined these shifts at two Australian news organisations: The Age and Crikey.
Prior to my current position, I worked on The Belonging Project, a longitudinal learning and teaching project which proposes a transferrable, grassroots model to enhance student belonging and the student experience, within our School and across the University.
I have just returned from living in the US and am keen to continue my work comparing developments in Australian journalism with similar shifts across the Pacific, a project I began with fellow journalism researchers at the Oxford Internet Institute Summer Doctoral Program (2009).
I am the Vice President (Conference) of the Journalism Education and Research Association of Australia (JERAA), and am currently working alongside my colleague Alex Wake to organise the December 2020 conference, hosted by RMIT.
