I am currently a PhD Candidate at the University of Wollongong, with a Master of Arts in Journalism, Media and Globalization from the University of Swansea. My working research title is:

Women video journalists covering news: Tales from the field

This research investigates the challenges women working as VJs face while covering conflicts – while deployed on the ground and when they are back home. Female VJ experiences will be gathered from interviews and observation of their work in conflict areas, analysed in a feature documentary, and supported by an exegesis. The exegesis will reflect on the topic of female VJs practices, the use of documentaries as a research methodology, and an array of relevant literature.
