Biography

I received my MPhil (Distinction) in Media and Culture from the John Logie Baird Centre, University of Glasgow, in 1998, and then worked for a decade as an award-winning producer and development producer of TV and fiction. I was awarded a PhD for the thesis, Documentary in a Multiplatform Context, from University of Copenhagen in 2013 and joined CCPR as a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellow in Digital Economy & Culture that same year. I am now a Lecturer in Media Policy.

 

I research the practices, policies and political economy of national and global screen industries, with a focus on the UK and Scandinavia. As an award-winning producer of documentary and fiction with credits from BBC, STV, Channel 4 and National Geographic, I have strong links to the British and European screen industry, its production companies, institutions, agencies and working knowledge of their funding structures and production models. As an academic, and building on my professional experience, I research international and national media and screen production, with particular focus on Public Service Media, streamers, screen agencies and funding models. I am especially interested in the theory and production of interactive and VR factual screen media and documentary as well as the practical implications and policies of sustainability and EDI on and off set. I also have an interest in academic video and audiovisual learning in the classroom. 

 

I am Principal Investigator on the Royal Society of Edinburgh Network grant Sustainable Screen Scotland (SSS) (2022-) as well as The Thunberg Test (TTT) (2022-), funded by an UKRI Arts Impact Acceleration Award and Screen Scotland.  I am a Juror on the annual Media Education Film Awards (2020-), as well as a member of the Peer Review Councils for the UKRI’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (2022-) and the UKRI’s Talent Peer Review College (2021-).

 

Research interests

  • Screen industries: funding, production and distribution
  • VoDs, streamers and the multiplatform strategies of European Public Service Media 
  • Screen policy and practices around EDI and sustainability
