Professor, RTA Media

Toronto, Canada

Welcome to my website. I am a professor in Toronto Metropolitan University's RTA School of Media in The Creative School and I hold the ES Rogers Sr Research Chair in Media Management and Entrepreneurship.

My research and teaching interests have to do with innovation management and policy in the creative and IT industries. I am broadly interested in demand for experience goods, and I am currently working on projects having to do with audiences and mediated consumption. Research publications are available here.

My recent graduate and undergraduate teaching includes courses on audiences, media management, new product development, political economy of media industries, media innovation, and media entrepreneurship. I teach in TMU's MA in Media Production program, and have taught in the TMU/York MA/PhD program in Communication and Culture, and in TMU's MBA/MSc in Management of Technology and Innovation program. A list of courses I have taught is here.

I have an interest in Q methodology and I maintain an online bibliography of research papers on Q methodology in audience research.

You can find me in the Rogers Communications Centre (RCC 315 or The Catalyst: RCC 230H).
