Academia

I have recently completed my PhD at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. My research focuses on how feminist campaigns in Australia have challenged gendered discourses of women in the Australian mainstream media.​ For a full list of my publications, please see my Academia.edu and ResearchGate profiles. Alternatively, I've selected a few of my favourites below.

Outside of these publications, I've also worked on some fantastic research projects. These include an Australian Research Council-funded project on image-based abuse, an international project on the harassment of women in urban spaces, social media use in senior citizens, and user testing for students in online classrooms. Feel free to drop me an email if you're after my complete CV.
