My research, and teaching, sit at the intersection of journalism, media production and ownership, and journalism pedagogy. My professional experience as a journalist and television news and documentary camera person informs my research interests in news and news content-production processes. Similarly, my role as a journalism educator inspires my research undertakings in journalism pedagogy.
