My research focuses on online identities and varied forms of digital content creation. Specifically, how people follow varied strategies to create and share content that may reflect their very different circumstances and priorities. Participants range from young creatives who experiment with connected learning and participatory culture to scholars who negotiate cyber harassment from other academics.

++Online academic bullying (OAB)
As a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, I explore how  academic cyberbullies use digital media in launching new forms of intellectual harassment in the OAB research project.

++Shushmoji emoji sticker sets
My company, Create With, has launched the Shushmoji™ emoji sticker app for WhatsApp on Android. These stickers can be used as conversation enders, one of many possible strategies against cyber harassment that the OAB research project describes.

++Multimodal argument in data visualisation
Associate Professor Arlene Archer and I are researching multimodal argument in data visualisation infographics based on fieldwork at the Centre for Film and Media Studies, UCT (2017-18).

I am active in the South African Multimodality in Education research group (SAME, UCT) and Design Research Activities Workgroup (DRAW, CPUT). I'm also literally in the same WhatsApp group of Professor Johannes Cronje's Technology in Education Research Postgraduate Students group (TERPS, CPUT). I am a member of: the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR), the Data Visualization Society and the South African Institute for Computer Scientists and Information Technologists (SAICSIT).

I do reviews of MA dissertations, PhD theses, plus conference manuscripts and pre-publication articles.

xxInequality in Digital Personas (2009-18)
My PhD thesis is available on Open UCT. This work was supported by South Africa’s National Research Fund, which provided funding as part of its ‘Procedural literacy, digital media and curriculum’ grant.

xxMedia, Conflict and Democratisation (2015-16)
I developed a coding index that was used by MeCoDEM's international team of researchers for coding interviews with social activists and journalists from Egypt, Kenya, Serbia and South Africa.

xxStudent ICT Access and Use (2011-13)
I prepared ICT Access and Use's first and second cycle coding schemas after transcribing many student interviews.
