Scientific Focus Areas 

My academic and research interests in the past few years are directly involved with citizenship and participation issues, whether from the point of view of pornography culture, celebrity culture and celebrity activism, children’s and young people’s internet practices and consumption, or children’s and young people’s sexualisation. I am a cultural studies expert and work with audiences. I am also interested in issues revolving around gender and technology (and sometimes, politics); sexuality, (including young people’s); constructions of femininity (especially through celebrity culture); television narratives; bullying practices among teenagers (including disabled people); public debates about children’s and young people’s everyday practices and consumption.
