IntroductionSenior Lecturer in Media and Communications. My current research examines the convergence of migrant networks and networked technologies. This is comparative research with Filipino migrants in the US and the UK which looks at a range of mediated practices including citizenship and visibility, fundraising and social capital. The research also explores the mediatization of migration – the ways in which the phenomenon of migration as a whole is transformed as a consequence of the increasing taken-for-grantedness of transnational communication.
