I am an early career researcher based in Wollongong, NSW. After completing my Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in my hometown of Toronto in linguistic anthropology and East Asian studies, I switched gears (and continents) and took on my PhD in media and communication at the University of Wollongong, Australia on the vidding community of fan remix video editors.
I now work as an educational designer for UOW, where I develop innovative eLearning initiatives for academics and professional staff including using user-generated content and social media to engage students in higher education.
My current project is a wide-ranging digital literacies project to help students learn skills for university and the workplace. Read more about it here!
