I'm passionate about digital technology, and enjoy exploring ways to maximise its social, political and economic impact. My academic focus lies within the fields of media studies, technology law and entrepreneurship. Prior to my academic studies, I was the editor of Tearaway Magazine.
My Master's project, "News, Renewed," is focused on exploring ways to improve how quality journalism is funded online. The project is assessing a range of monetisation strategies, and is working alongside a development team to create an online platform that allows these strategies to be easily implemented by publishers, bloggers and journalists.
I have also undertaken research for the School of Information Management at Victoria University of Wellington, studying the future of content distribution in a digital age. This research explores many types of media, including journalism, music, books, television, film and academic literature. Interviews with content creators, users, industry representatives and media commentators form the backbone of this research.
