I am a early career researcher and tutor at the University of Adelaide. I have taught a range of undergraduate classes across all levels in the B. Media Degree and have a recently awarded PhD.

My PhD thesis "Retrospectively Reading Complex TV and The Sopranos" explores how some 'old' television texts are being given a second life by new audiences. I discuss the ways in which watching complex shows a new mediascape can transform the meaning we take from them. My project combines close textual analysis with in-depth research interviews.

PhD thesis “Retrospectively Reading The Sopranos: Rethinking Complex Television in New Cultural Contexts"

I have published other research that has stemmed from my thesis. My broader research interests are television studies, audience studies, complex TV, masculinity studies and The Sopranos.
