Director

Doctor of Philosophy Subject Media and Communication Studies (Karlstad University)

I am a Professor of Media and Communication, a computational social scientist and Director of QUT’s Digital Media Research Centre. My research is focused on developing data science tools and methods to analyse the production and consumption of digital cultural products – particularly music. I have (co)authored/(co)edited nine books on these topics over the years – Most recently I published the 3rd edition of ‘The Music Industry: Music in the Cloud’ at Polity Press and will release a monograph on TikTok and short video platforms in 2022. I publish my journal based work in outlets such as Social Media + Society, Economic Inquiry, Technovation, Convergence, International Journal of Communication, International Journal of Media Management, Journal of Media Business Studies, Journal of Music Business Studies, Popular Music & Society, etc. Previously I have been Associate Dean of Research in QUT’s Creative Industries Faculty; Head of the School of Communication at QUT and Deputy Director of the QUT Digital Media Research Centre. I have served as a faculty member at Northeastern University (Boston, USA), Jonkoping International Business School (Jonkoping, Sweden) and Karlstad University (Karlstad, Sweden). I received my Ph.D. from Karlstad University in Media and Communication Studies and I am an MScEng graduate from Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden). Before my academic career, I worked in the European media and telecom industry where I held positions as business development manager and strategy consultant.
