about me

I am Professor of Digital Media Studies, at the School of Media, Entertainment and Creative Arts in the Creative Industries Faculty of Queensland University of Technology. You can also find versions of me on Facebook and Twitter. Prior to this I worked at the Universities of Salford and Manchester in the United Kingdom. Before working in higher education, I undertook several administrative roles within the UK’s National Health Service and even spent some time as a Health Promotion worker with MESMAC, a sexual health organisation. I’m interested in how people get different kinds of technologies to work for them on an everyday basis. I started out looking at this in the 1990s, generally in the workplace. However, since then I have found that developments outside work have tended to hold my attention more. I still do research about people and work, but given the way life is being played out in many (but not all) parts of the world I think there’s more to do beyond this. My current research agenda centres on analysing the development and use of the Internet and Digital Games, specifically as related to gender and sexuality, health and wellbeing, engagement.
