Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My research interests include media and communication policy, media freedom and pluralism, theories of democracy and the public sphere, and questions about digital rights and internet governance. I have authored the book Rethinking Media Pluralism (Fordham University Press, 2013), and my work has also appeared in journals like the European Journal of Communication, Information, Communication & Society, Journalism Studies, The Information Society, Journal of Information Policy and First Monday. I have also worked as a visiting research fellow at the University of Sydney, Westminster University and Fordham Univerity.

I have taught courses on areas, such as media structures and policy, media institutions, democracy and the public sphere, as well as bachelor's and master's seminars.
