About me

I am an experienced media maker, researcher and writer. I began my teaching career at City, University of London helping journalists to publish onto the web. I am now programme leader of UWE's BA (hons) Media Production. You can find more information about me at www.mjgw.net.‚Äč

Area of expertise

Despite holding degrees in linguistics and law, my overall field is journalism and critical media studies. In particular I research the ways that incidental exposure to factual content (and misinformation) on the internet is driven and mediated by cultural participation, attention economics, the psychology of affect, and political-economic factors. My current research examines the cultures of informal knowledge transfer on Youtube, TikTok and other social media platforms.
