  • PhD (Monash University), BA, Hons (Monash University)

    I have a background in cultural studies and cinema studies, and hold a BA (Hons) and PhD from Monash University. My PhD research on American commercial-independent filmmaking is to be published as the book American Smart Cinema (Edinburgh UP, 2011) and my interest in film serialization and reception is reflected in my co-editor roles on the forthcoming collections Film Trilogies: New Critical Approaches (Palgrave Macmillan) and B for Bad Cinema: Aesthetics, Politics, and Cultural Value (Wayne State UP). My research has also appeared in the international journals The Velvet Light Trap, Cinemascope and Rhizomes.
