I research at the intersection of gender, race and identity in journalism, with a particular interest in media representations of women and minorities and the professional experiences of women and minority journalists. My scholarship has been published in several leading journals including Journalism, Journalism Studies, Journalism History, American Journalism, The Howard Journal of Communications, and Feminist Media Studies.
My scholarship has received top paper and other awards from the History, Minorities and Communication, Commission on Graduate Education, Commission on the Status of Women, Media Ethics, and Cultural & Critical Studies Divisions of the Association for Education in Journalism & Mass Communcation (AEJMC).
I have a PhD. in Journalism Studies and an M.A in Journalism from the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism, as well as a B.A. with high honors in History from UMD.
