I’m a radio producer, research assistant and radio journalism PhD candidate at Monash University.  I’m currently producing a feature for ABC RN’s Earshot program and working as a supervising producer for All the Best, Australia’s national storytelling radio show and podcast.  Find out more about my radio work here.

My research assistant work with Associate Professor Mia Lindgren, Head of School of Film, Media and Journalism at Monash University, analyses podcasting, storytelling, journalism, ethics and practice-led scholarly journalism research.  I am currently working on an ARC Discovery Project researching publics, media and communications on antibiotic resistance, titled AMR-scrapes (Antimicrobial Resistance: Science Communication and Public Engagements).

I’m an editorial assistant for the academic journal The Radio Journal: International studies in broadcast & audio media, which publishes diverse research in radio and sound media, including the production, circulation and reception of radio and creative soundwork.

I’m also part of Monash University’s organising committee for the Transnational Radio Conference 10-13 July 2018 in Prato, Italy.  Find out more about this conference here.

My own PhD research is a practice-led thesis studying emerging independent podcast producers and their contribution to Australian radio journalism. The project is funded by a Monash Faculty of Arts Research Scholarship (FARS). I’ll be presenting some of my preliminary findings at the 2017 Journalism Education and Research Association of Australia (JERAA) conference in Newcastle, Australia 4-6 December.  I’ll also be delivering part of a pre-conference masterclass on practice-led journalism research on 3 December.  Find out more about my PhD research here.

I also do freelance/contract audio production work, including tape syncs, audio editing and sound design/mixing.  Contact me here.
