I am Assistant Professor of Journalism Studies at the School of Journalism & Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. I am also a Research Fellow at the Tow Center for Digital Journalism (2016) and an Affiliated Fellow at the Yale Information Society Project. At the University of Minnesota, I teach Mass Media and Popular Culture as well as New Media and Culture, and continue my research on media sociology, news production, and emerging media.
Previously I was Executive Director and Research Scholar (2014-16) and Postdoctoral Fellow (2013-14) at the Information Society Project at Yale University. My work explores the implications of emerging media in news production, and builds on my first monograph, Social Media at BBC News: The Re-Making of Crisis Reporting (Routledge, 2015). My research has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals, including Journalism, Global Media Journal, and Symbolic Interaction. I also write for the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University.
Born in Montréal (Canada), I earned a BA in sociology (honors) from McGill University, an MSc in sociology from Université de Montréal, and a PhD in sociology from City University of London.
