Researcher biography

I'm a researcher and lecturer at The University of Queensland Business School. My expertise is in critically evaluating how people and organisations use language to communicate about themselves and shape the world around them. I'm committed to doing research that promotes justice and equity, and helps government, the media, and industry communicate for the common good.

My current research explores sustainability in the arts and culture sector, news reporting on violence against women and girls, and COVID-19 crisis communication.

I've recently collaborated with various peak bodies in the Australian arts and culture sector such as Theatre Network Australia, and arts companies of various sizes (e.g., Queensland Ballet and La Boite Theatre) to develop a free peer coaching program known as "Creating out Loud." This program builds networks of mutual support for artists and arts workers across all levels of the arts and culture sector.

Enriching the arts and culture sector is of high importance to me. In 2021, I was awarded an Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellowship to support arts workers recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.
