I'm a postgraduate student at RMIT University, Australia, researching crowdfunding as a research funding mechanism. My current interest (2018) focuses on scholars using Patreon to fund their research or research communication.

In the past, I've worked in a number of areas, mostly relating to privacy, and technology in the GLAM sector.

With my colleague, Tseen Khoo, I manage the Research Whisperer blog and Twitter stream (@ResearchWhisper).
