Jake's professional background is in information systems and web development. Prior to joining the School of Information Studies at CSU, Jake was Research Fellow at the University of Strathclyde's Centre for Digital Library Research where he worked on a range of digitisation and e-publishing projects.
Jake's research explores the role of digital communications networks in the mobilisation of social movements and emerging practices of digital citizenship, focusing primarily on the environmental movement in Australia. Jake uses digital research methods (such as web crawling and visualisation) to explore how politics happens in digital space.
Jake's teaching focuses on the reflexive relationship between digital communications networks and society, and the impact of this relationship on professional practice in the information industry. In his teaching practice Jake works with students to examine the impact of ubiquitous networks, digital information and media on society and the economy in Australia and a range of other international contexts.
