I am an associate professor in the Department of Communication and Journalism. I earned a Ph.D. in mass communication at the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1999 and a post-doctorate Fulbright Fellowship in media at McGill University in Montreal in 2008-09. My curriculum vitae is available online, along with graphical, PowerPoint and textual summaries of my dissertation. I've taught a challenging mix of media courses, ranging from Intermediate and Advanced Journalism to Research Methods to Mass Media Ethics, for which I am a co-author of a leading textbook and its website.

While in graduate school, I was one of the founding editors at the Web's top-rated news site, washingtonpost.com. The complete texts and references for four conference papers that I presented while in graduate school are also available:
