I am a doctoral student in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities. My research focuses on (1) the use of computational methods in mass communication research; (2) journalism and new media technologies; and (3) the interplay between issue framing, media, and policy, with a focus on foreign affairs. My research has been published or is forthcoming in leading peer-reviewed journals, including Science Communication, the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, and the Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media.
In addition to my research, I am particularly interested in data visualization and natural language processing. I have previously worked as a reporter at the Minneapolis StarTribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Lastly, I hold a BA in Journalism from the University of Minnesota as well as an MS in Mass Communication from Florida International University.
