I study media sociology with a focus on the changing organizational structures and practices of newsrooms and the potential for news organizations to contribute to civic engagement. I have a specific interest in local media, alternative media, and magazine media. I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in digital news at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism.
My teaching experience includes news and feature writing and reporting, media and news literacy, and qualitative research methods.
I previously served as senior editor at TulsaPeople Magazine, where I worked from 2005-2012, and copy editor at the Oklahoma Gazette from 2004-2005.
