About Me

I am an Associate Professor in the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. With more than a decade of experience researching information ecosystems, organizations and communities, I focus on the use of large-scale Web data to study processes of change. Current areas of focus include work on algorithms and knowledge, public policy processes, production of media, and the science of communication within information ecosystems. Additional research includes an examination of the role of technology in local news organizations, and the effectiveness of adopting social media within organizations.
