Her research focuses on Australian cultural productions and critical analysis. She has published on various aspects of radio production, holographic art, sound art, country music and documentary film. In the last decade, her publications have coalesced around screen music and sound, and she led a team of researchers on a four-year ARC Discovery Project ‘Music production and technology in Australian Film’ from 2007 to 2010.
