Journalism Discipline Lead, Curtin University

I am the Discipline Lead for Journalism at Curtin University, where I have been employed since 2005.
Previously, I worked as a journalist for a range of media outlets including The Australian, The Sun Herald and The Eye.
Research interests include women in the news and representations of gender in the news media. I also have a particular interest in news coverage of education and have regularly published in this area, including as co-author of Schoolteachers in the News (Cambria Press, 2013).
