A former journalist and now journalism lecturer at UQ’s School of Communication and Arts. My research straddles design and journalism practice, and aims to show how one can help the other innovate. I teach courses in digital journalism and production, including the funky J+IxD initiative that teams budding news hounds with emerging designers. My PhD project, the NewsCube, won an industry grant for journalism innovation.
