Research and Creative Interestspolitical communication, civility, incivility, mediatization,
I received my B.A. from Ohio State University (2006) and my master's degree from Uppsala University (2010). Prior to beginning my doctoral studies, I taught English as a foreign language in Turkey, interned at research institutes in Stockholm, Sweden, and Washington, D.C., and did public policy and government relations work for a youth-serving organization in Indiana. My primary research interests include communication in politics and comparative political communication.
