I am a Senior Lecturer in film and literature at the University of Newcastle, Australia, and a researcher in popular culture, specialising in celebrity and fan studies.

Some of my recent research projects have included: investigations of Hong Kong superstar, Andy Lau; fan responses to Captain America; One Direction; works on the television shows Supernatural, Shadowhunters, and In The Flesh, as well as book chapters on the Hollywood remake of Hong Kong blockbuster, Infernal Affairs and the Korean action epic, The Good, The Bad, The Weird.

I love writing about my passions, what interests me, what interests others, and sharing all of these thoughts with my readers. Take a look around ... perhaps you’ll discover what fuels you as well.
