Research interests

I am an expert in the fields of political communication and journalism studies (and mass communication studies more broadly). My specific research interests include: online election campaign; politicians’ use of social media; (innovations in) digital media and journalism practice; online political participation and civic engagement; digital activism; forms of online deliberation and political talk; the intersections between popular culture and formal politics; and notions of the public sphere and deliberative democratic theory.

PhD supervision

I welcome doctoral students interested in the above or related subjects in the fields of journalism and political communication, especially in relation to European and Western democratic states.
