Projects

A selection of my ongoing research projects.

Civic Signals

What principles do we want social media and search platforms to follow for the civic good? We’re talking to members of the public and leaders from a variety of sectors to try to reach a consensus. I’m working on Civic Signals through my appointment at the Center for Media Engagement, in collaboration with our director Talia Stroud and The Filter Bubble author Eli Pariser.

Post Facto

A second experimental test of my news literacy game, Post Facto. The first experiment won the Moeller Student Paper Competition at the 2019 AEJMC conference.


Reader questions about the news

A Center for Media Engagement project I initiated and for which I secured an American Press Institute grant in the first year of my Ph.D. Click for a summary and full report, for my blog post for API, and a nice piece by Trusting News’ Joy Meyer, linking our findings back to ideas for how newsrooms can build trust with their readers.
