I'm interested in supervising projects in areas related to popular culture and the 'natural environment' - in any of the myriad ways that popular culture and the 'natural environment' are manifest.

My research interests sit at the intersection of the mass media, materialism and our relationship with the natural environment. My current work includes a book proposal about electronic waste (and an online media/economic literacy toolkit that will help people explore how the issue of electronic waste has been avoided); a book chapter about how we learn about the environment from television; a journal article about “ethical oil"; research on how advertisers/marketers and environmental activists are using new information/communication technologies.
