Senior Lecturer in Journalism, Monash University
I am just beginning a new job as a senior lecturer in journalism at Monash University in Melbourne, after a lengthy stint at Deakin University.
From October 2015 to January 2016 I was a senior visiting research fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in the Department of Media and Communications. I worked on projects related to the different editions of The Guardian and the global news agencies' gate-keeping of Syrian UGC.
I teach radio, television and international news. I also research international newsgathering, transnational television and social media. I am the co-secretary of the Journalism Education & Research Association of Australia and have been an occasional contributor to ABC Breakfast TV's newspaper slot.
My book 'Foreign Correspondents and International Newsgathering: The Role of Fixers' was published by Routledge Research (2015). I have a PhD in Media & Comms from the University of Melbourne and a Masters in International Journalism from City University in London.
In my previous career I worked as a reporter, producer and news editor for a number of international news organisations including the BBC, ITN and APTN. I am most active on social media on Twitter as @ivorytowerjourn
