My research focuses on the reconfiguration of journalism in a changing media environment and the development of digital research methods. From a theoretical perspective, I am interested in the changing nature of news and newswork amid the adoption of new technologies, an influx of technologists into newsrooms, and greater emphasis on data. From a methodological perspective, I am interested in developing tools and algorithms to facilitate content analyses of growing datasets. Recently, I have devoted time to developing---and exploring the implications of---a hybrid approach to content analysis that seeks to integrate both manual and automated modes of analysis in order to enhance the validity and reliability of large-scale analyses of media content. I have also recently worked on a process for capturing and automatically coding certain aesthetic properties of websites, and analyzing them over time. Given the interdisciplinarity of my field and my work, I welcome collaborations with fellow scholars whose work intersects with mass communication and/or employs content analysis as a central method.
