Biography

Dr Kylie Pappalardo studies how automation, digital distribution, and intellectual property laws shape the reach and diversity of our culture. Her work seeks to develop and inform law, public policy and industry norms that prioritise marginalised voices and diverse perspectives in the production and distribution of screen content.

Kylie is a Senior Lecturer in the Law School at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), a Chief Investigator with the Digital Media Research Centre (DMRC), and an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Research (DECRA) Fellow (2021-2024) (DE210100525).

Her DECRA project examines the impact of copyright law in Australia’s screen industries, focusing on distribution and access to audiovisual material. It considers how the high costs and complex logistics of screen production and distribution can be reconciled with the public goal of broad, affordable and sustained availability of audiovisual content that represents the full diversity of Australia’s people and cultures.

Kylie holds degrees in Law and Creative Writing from QUT, a Master of Law from Georgetown University in Washington D.C., and a PhD from the Australian Catholic University. Her doctoral thesis examined the regulation of online service providers for third party copyright infringement.
