++Academic Free Speech and Digital Voices (AFSDV)
I lead the AFSDV research project. It focuses on four themes: digital voices, academic free speech, online academic bullying and affordable data extraction for digital humanities research. These foci resonate with my: research profile's interests, past scholarship and contributions, and new avenues of inspiration.

++Shushmoji emoji sticker sets
My company, Create With™ Cape Town, has launched the Shushmoji ® chat sticker app for WhatsApp on Android, and for Apple users. These stickers can be used as conversation enders, one of many possible strategies against cyber harassment.

My best outputs and completed research have led to these peer-reviewed research articlesconference papers and chapters. Where copyright permits, their manuscripts are shared from my Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive accounts.

These scholarly publications are indexed by ORCIDWeb of ScienceSCOPUSSemantic ScholarKudos and Google Scholar. New publications are shared via two academic social networks; and ResearchGate. Public presentations can be viewed at Slideshare.

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

I do reviews for journals and conferences, and have also assisted MA and PhD students with improving their research projects and writing.


xxOnline academic bullying (OAB)
As a Post-doctoral research fellow at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, I explored how  academic cyberbullies used digital media for launching new forms of intellectual harassment. This supported the Online Academic Bullying theme. This became an AFSDV research project theme, identifying many research gaps.

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

xxInequality in Digital Personas (2009-18)
This PhD thesis is available on Open UCT. Its 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.
