I am currently completing a two year contract as an Assistant Professor of Television Studies at the University of Amsterdam. My research work is usually found at the intersection of television studies, fan and audience studies, and media industries. My teaching includes those areas, and is extended to digital cultures, game studies, 21C convergent television cultures, global media cultures, and broader teaching within cultural studies and film and media studies. I currently have a monograph under contract with Amsterdam University Press’ Transmedia series looking at the shifts in television in the 21C from a holistic perspective, looking at industries, creatives, audiences and texts.
