Biography

In my research, I have been especially interested in negativity (and positivity) in news coverage; in the ways in which media succeed (or fail) to inform the public about policy issues; and in the impact of both legacy and new media on attitudes towards a broad range of policies such as immigration, defense, welfare and health care. My research depends on a variety of quantitative techniques, including survey research, automated content analysis and psychophysiological experimentation.
