Personal profile

Research interests

My career has spanned both industry and academia. Prior to lecturing at Bond University, I worked for the IBM Corporation USA as an Information Developer in the Kingston, New York laboratory,  as a Systems Engineer in New York City marketing, and as a sub-headquarters staff member in internal public relations. I also taught Communication at Southern Connecticut State University, KVB College of Visual Communication in Sydney, and Sydney Institute of Technology, Randwick.

I am interested in visual communication and representation generally, and have conducted research on the development of information graphics, effective road signage, illness blogs, media reports of the 2016 Great Barrier Reef bleaching event, and, most recently, feminist film. 

 

Statement for HDR students

I am able to supervise many topics within the field of communication and welcome expressions of interest from motivated PhD and Masters by Research candidates.

I have supported my research students in successfully publishing their work, and have previously co-supervised a PhD thesis on the culture of photojournalists.
