Current research

What Works

My current research tracks theoretical and technological trends in the use of digital technology in higher education classrooms.

Power + Visual Communication

I also have a passionate research interest in tracking power relationships past and present through visual evidence.

PhD research

My phd research involved developing a method for using visual artifacts as primary source material, and writing a history of governance in the State of Victoria, Australia, from first European settlement to the end of the twentieth century. This was an interdisciplinary political science and graphic design history, which made use of government emblems, seals, and logos as primary sources.
