Kath co-leads the Digital inclusion Program at Swinburne's Social Innovation Institute. Her work investigates young people’s practices of digital self-representation, and the role of user-generated media (including social networking platforms) in young people’s formal and informal sexual learning, safety and wellbeing. She is particularly interested in the ways digital media users engage in cultures of care, and the ways that individuals and organisations develop digital literacy and data literacy.
