I am a Lecturer in Media Studies in the School of Art, Media, and American Studies at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK.

My research interests are broadly situated within digital media, feminist theories and ethnographic methods. Specifically I am interested in girls’ digital cultures, contemporary feminist activism and solidarities, the performance of feminine selves online, and  public girlhoods.

My first book, Girls’ Feminist Blogging in a Postfeminist Age (Routledge, 2015) uses ethnographic methods to explore girls’ blogging as a significant practice of contemporary feminist activism. Read more about it in the Book section of this website.

I received my PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013, and also hold a Master’s of Journalism from the University of British Columbia (2007) and a Bachelor of Arts Honours from the University of Saskatchewan (2005).

I am an avid yogi, aspiring potter, and occasional traveller.
