Researcher, educator, lover of all things journalism.


I am a PhD candidate in Communication at the University of Ottawa and journalism instructor at Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication.

As a journalist, researcher, and educator, I care about the changing norms and practices of journalism, what audiences expect of newsmakers, and how our relationship with journalism affects us all. My doctoral thesis explores anti-media backlash when democratic votes yield unexpected results. Other research interests include podcast studies, diversity and inclusion in media, journalism innovation, the normative future of journalism, and the intersection of feminism and media.
