I'm a journalist and journalism academic from Canberra, Australia. I'm a digital immigrant but a journalism native!
My media career began in the late 1980's in the industrial city of Wollongong where I worked as a news reporter/reader for commercial radio and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), eventually becoming the ABC's Regional News Editor. In the early 90's I moved to Sydney as a reporter with ABC TV Documentaries before returning to my first love, radio, with the flagship ABC current affairs programs AM, PM and the World Today. In 1997, I was posted to the Canberra Press Gallery as a political correspondent for these programs. My reporting focus was on social justice issues including Aborignal affairs and ethnic communities.
While I still call myself a journalist, I moved into academia in 2003 and I now teach radio and television journalism at the University of Canberra*. Teaching inspires me and I learn something new every day from my students, but research is my current motivator. I'm undertaking a PhD on the way the media portray Muslim women while continuing research into multicultural journalism and public broadcasting.
