Personal profile


My research interests include K-pop, Korean popular culture, and East Asian popular musics; language and popular culture; music technology; the Australian music industries, and music and cultural policy; and music and screen media (including documentary, film, and games).

My research projects have explored K-pop fandom and multi-cultural understanding in Australia, following a 2016 grant from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Australia-Korea Foundation. I am regional president (Australia) of the international World Association of Hallyu Studies, a multidisciplinary organisation dedicated to furthering the study of Korean popular culture. My 2016 book "The New Music Industries: Disruption and Discovery" (Palgrave: co-authored with Diane Hughes, Mark Evans, and Guy Morrow) examined the challenges of music careers in the digital age. I have supervised PhDs and Masters (research) in the areas of 20th century music and diaspora, technologised music performance, and electronic music production.

I have taught in areas including music business, music production, radio production, digital media, and music technology and performance. I currently convene units in music production and digital media. Since 2018 I have taught the summer unit 'Global Korean Popular Culture' at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Korea.
