I am originally from Canada, but have studied, worked, and lived in the U.S., China, Hong Kong, Denmark, Croatia, Sweden, and now the U.K. Before getting a Ph.D., I worked as a television and radio producer and reporter. My research interests focus on how human rights are covered in various types of news platforms, focusing particularly on women's rights. I also study digital news reporting and contextual influences such as hegemony.
