I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of British Columbia. My Ph.D. research examined the changes in the news media environment and its relationship to political polarization in the United States. I am particularly interested in examining the nature of coverage of scientific issues in the news, the dynamics of public opinion polarization of scientific issues like climate change, safety of GMOs, and vaccinations, and the relationship between the two. I was formerly the Martin Fishbein Postdoctoral Fellow at the Annenberg Public Policy Center as well as a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada nonresident Postdoctoral Fellow at Simon Fraser University.
