Personal profile

Biography

I have a long history working in the media industries before moving into academia, including music, television, and video games. My research is in popular media with an interest in the interrelationships forged between media industry practices and the media text through the lens of genre, adaptation, and transmedia movement.

I have submitted my PhD thesis "How have the industrial discourses around the cultural and economic value of factual genre television limited the development and production of British television?"

I co-organised a research trip to Ritsumeikan University, Japan in 2019 to participate in a workshop and group panel on transmedia and the media mix in video games. This is currently being written up as part of a special issue. I have a paper on the transmedia movement of Gatchaman published in the Journal of Animation Studies. 

Have been an associate tutor at UEA for four years and part of UEA Outreach. Have taught on film analysis, film history, digital media, and reception studies. I have been a supervisor for undergraduate media practice projects for three years. I was nominated for Outstanding Contribution to Postgraduate Community Award at the Student Transformation Awards and Recognitions in 2019.
