I am an anthropologist (PhD, UCL) specialising in the study of media. I live in Melbourne (Australia) where I am a Vice-Chancellor's Senior Research Fellow (2013-2016) at the School of Media and Communication, RMIT University. I am also a Fellow of the Digital Anthropology Programme at UCL.
In my current RMIT research I compare new forms of digital activism in Indonesia, Spain and other countries. I am also developing new international collaborations on mobile and online media for social change.
