Dr Amber Marshall is a Research Fellow at the Digital Media Research Centre.
Over the past two years, Amber has worked to help progress DMRC’s research agenda in digital inclusion and participation. She has helped lead several flagship projects, authored many important documents, and had an impact on digital inclusion research and practice across states and sectors in Australia.
Having lived in Central Australia and Far North Queensland for almost four years (2014-2017), Amber is passionate about digital inclusion and participation in regional, rural and remote Australia.
To this end, in 2018 Amber received funding from the Australia Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) to undertake research on digital connectivity on remote cattle stations in Far North Queensland. She partnered with The Cairns Institute (James Cook University) — where she is an Adjunct Research Fellow — to undertake this work.
