I am Associate Professor at Drew University and director of the  Program in Media and Communications.  My research explores how technological shifts in communication alter the dissemination of political information through mainstream and alternative media forms.  Thus, I have published a number of essays and book chapters on the relationship between Wikileaks and the mainstream press; investigated how Canadian newspapers understand Internet governance; looked at the archiving of born-digital news materials; helped to design a news game about sex work laws in Quebec; written a book about native advertising; and, most recently, looked at how media platforms are articulating the relationship between algorithms and democracy.  More information about my research, teaching and web-based work can be found on this site.
