She holds degrees in law and communications, and currently writes news, analysis and features for CNET across the topics of electric vehicles, broadband networks, mobile devices, big tech, artificial intelligence, home technology and entertainment.

I've been covering technology and mobile for 12 years, first as a telecommunications reporter and assistant editor at ZDNet in Australia, then as CNET's West Coast head of breaking news, and now in the Thought Leadership team.
The event will take place online at 10 a.m. PT on Aug. 22, and will feature one central point, the Hall of Heroes, where the panels and main events will take place, and five satellite areas: YouVerse, KidsVerse, WatchVerse, InsiderVerse and FunVerse.
WatchVerse will have all the panels and exclusive screenings of new footage; InsiderVerse will show how the DC universes are brought to life across TV, movies, theme parks and comics; FunVerse will host a merchandise store; and KidsVerse will be filled with family-friendly content and activities.
With traditional fan conventions all cancelled or postponed because of the spread of the coronavirus, organizations are turning to online-only options. Last week, San Diego Comic Con announced it will be a free digital event on July 22-26, and will host panels on movies, TV series, games, comics and more.
