I am a Research Fellow at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University. In Fall 2017, I will be joining the faculty as an Assistant Professor at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota.
At the Reuters Institute, I currently study the behavior of news avoidance in an international context. My other research interests include a large project focusing on public opinion polling and its role in news coverage of American politics. I also study the changing media landscape and its impact on both elite messaging and how citizens engage politically.
I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016, and from 2005-2011, I was a researcher on the editorial page of the New York Times.
