More than two decades in the communications field has shaped my perspective from which to approach research and pedagogy. This orientation supports my objective to pursue a body of research that produces both theoretical value and empirical insight beneficial to the profession. I am also a passionate teacher and enjoy interacting with students in ways that boost their knowledge, confidence, and abilities.
My research interests include journalism’s role in democracy, media ethics, media processes and production, law and policy, and technology in the newsroom. My current projects include several projects (including my dissertation) related to the rising phenomenon of unpublishing requests—a result of technological change that challenges newsrooms both internally and externally.
