Skilled in qualitative research and analysis, report writing, journalism - particularly covering technology and the Internet, undergraduate, postgraduate and professional teaching, social media and virtual community building and maintenance.
I have over a decade’s experience as a print and online journalist covering predominantly technology, also breaking news and features while at BBC News Online and ITN Online. In 1995 I was the Net Editor at New Scientist and while there launched one of the first major online extensions of a UK magazine.
From 1999 to 2002 I became involved as a consultant in a variety of online publications, from a news search site to one of the most ambitious early broadband video projects– Network of the World - giving me experience of managing in a rapidly-changing environment and an insight into the ways in which online business models for journalism continue to evolve.
I have taught for six years full-time, but I have also taught part time in various higher education institutions both public and private since 2000. I have been an active researcher since my PhD, producing a book, Sharing Our Lives Online: Risks and Exposure in Social Media and several articles in highly-ranked journals alongside my teaching. I have also produced a number of media policy-related reports and literature reviews while at the London School of Economics.
