Associate Professor, English, Communications and Performance Studies, Monash University

I studied communications and media studies at the University of Western Sydney (BA Hons) and Macquarie University (PhD) in Sydney. Before joining Monash in 2008, I taught media studies at the University of Western Sydney (1999-2001) and the University of Newcastle (2001-2007).

Through memberships in various organisations (Music Council of Australia; ARC Cultural Research Network; FairGo4Live Music) my work has engaged with the industrial and policy contexts of music production and consumption. I have also been Chair of the Australia-New Zealand branch of IASPM (International Association for the Study of Popular Music) and General Secretary of its international executive.
