My current research examines attempts to find sustainable models for doing investigative, public interest journalism. I am working with digital start ups to explore how they can best grow audiences, via subscription and membership schemes.
My other research interests include issues of discrimination in sport and the sports media, including racism and other forms of hate speech on social media.
My most recent publications include:
