Research Profile

I am an Assistant Professor of Social Communication at the School of Social Communication in the Faculty of Human Sciences at Saint Paul University (Federated with the University of Ottawa).

My approach to the study of culture, media and communication is multidisciplinary. My research encompasses new media and digital culture, social media, intangible heritage, popular culture, gender studies, critical theory, media archaeology and media history.

Since then, a host of research positions and awards has enhanced my current work:

This international research conducted in institutions throughout the world – Canada, England, Sweden, Austria and Turkey – has enriched my work with a global perspective.

A common thread connects my interdisciplinary work: the recording and preservation of media. I examine the transmission of popular music and dance on the Web, the dissemination of intangible heritage through social media, and the miniaturization of media forms through small-tech networked devices. These explorations take into consideration the content that is stored in relation to the medium in which it is registered and transmitted.
