I am an early career researcher and lecturer in journalism and public relations. My research interests include the Australian Defence Force (ADF), military families and social media. I have presented to various ADF affiliated groups about social media and military families. I have published in academic journals and presented at many domestic and international conferences. I am an active researcher who uses qualitative methods including netnography and interviewing.
In my hypothetical spare time I enjoy reading and walking my goofy Golden Retriever dog.
