Lecturer in Communications, Media and Culture, University of Stirling

Eddy holds a BA in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Zulia in Venezuela and an MA and PhD in Music and Communication from the University of Malaga in Spain. His doctoral thesis looked at the musical imagery used by online communities of prosumers when attributing meaning to their musical practices on the internet. He joined the Division of Communication Media and Culture in 2011 as Lecturer in Journalism Studies from the University of Malaga where he taught Production and Media Studies.
Eddy has worked as a music journalist, a television and radio producer and a PR practitioner in Venezuela and Spain between 1996 and 2010.

Eddy is interested in the relationship between media, technology and power. His research is focused on the analysis of social imaginaries as discursive archives and how they are utilised when members of society attribute meaning to their cultural practices. In this exploration, he has studied different cultural practices, mediations and appropriations occurring in cross-media environments such as the internet. Recently, he is concerned with issues in Data Journalism, Open Data, Big Data, Freedom of Information, Mobile Journalism, Innovation Journalism, Photojournalism, and Musical Imaginary
