I have published widely on various aspects of new media, including the historical development electronic commerce and the social implications of mobile computing technologies. For the past five years I have been specialising in the social and cultural dimensions of vldeo games, with my most cited work examining the debate over game censorship. My current work focues on the concept of mediatisation and its implications for a wide range of activities, including sport, politics and education.
My diverse academic background means that I can supervise research students working on a variety of different topics, but I am particularly interested in working with students wanting to explore the role the media is playing in changing social relations.
