Research interests

My research falls into two broad areas: political communication and media policy. In both areas, I'm interested in the relationship between media and politics, focusing either on the media's role in politics or how politics shapes media. Common themes in much of my work are the democratic implications of media and the role of public deliberation and engagement in politics and policymaking. My research interests include:

  • Digital media, democracy, and citizenship
  • Media and political theory
  • Media and communications policy
  • Public engagement and deliberation in media policymaking and governance
