I am Senior Lecturer in New Media at Birmingham City University, where I run the BA (Hons) Media & Communication (New Media).
I am an external examiner at Northumbria University and Ravensbourne, and have previously held EE appointments at Falmouth University and Ulster University. I enjoy working on validation and revalidation work on media courses, please contact me if you need an external validator.
I am currently completing my PhD project which is an investigation into the discourses of hyperlocal media in the UK.
I have previously published work on the social media activity of fans of the TV show The West Wing and on issues related to media education. Links to these projects are collected on Academia.edu.
I have worked in various roles on knowledge transfer projects for Birmingham City University, and I am keen to work with external organisations on developing relevant and impactful research.
