Helen has been teaching, researching and producing new media for more than twelve years. One of her main research interests is the politics of new media. In previous work, this has meant looking at (in)equalities, inclusions and exclusions in new media consumption, in relation to gender, race, class and disability. Currently, she is focusing on the politics of new media work, for example, the working conditions of the new media workforce, and the consequences for consumption of particular practices in the production process. She led the Inclusive New Media Design research project, which aimed to identify the best ways to encourage web designers and developers to make websites accessible to people with intellectual disabilities, and to explore the place of accessibility in the work practices of web designers.
