Entrance to Murphy Hall, University of Minnesota

I am an Assistant Professor at the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota and a Research Associate at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University. I study the changing media landscape and its impact on journalistic practice, elite messaging, and how citizens engage in political and civic life.

I am currently working on two main research projects. The first is a book manuscript on public opinion polling and its role in news coverage of American politics. The second is a project on infrequent news users—an effort to better understand people’s attitudes toward news and why they avoid it.

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.
