Biographical details

Dr Jonathon Hutchinson (Ph.D. 2013, ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation, Queensland University of Technology) arrived at the University of Sydney in 2012. Before then, he held teaching positions at RMIT University in Melbourne and UTS in Sydney. His research interests are primarily internet governance models, especially the role human and non-human cultural intermediation plays in the collaborative production of cultural goods. Given the significance of social media in contemporary communication, he is also interested in user relationships in mediated environments, prompting his development of eResearch methodologies for social media network analysis. He tweets from @dhutchman.
