I am a researcher at the MediaFutures Research Centre for Responsible Media Technology and Innovation. I did my postdoc at the Digital Social Science Core Facility (DIGSSCORE) and I hold a PhD from the Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the University of Bergen, Norway. Much of my research explore patterns and effects of news and political communication, trust in journalism, and exposure to like-minded information, and polarization and fragmentation. Currently, I am also interested in how innovations in experimental methods, such as conjoint designs, can enhance political communication research.
I also founded and lead the Norwegian Journalism Panel and the interdisciplinary Political Communication Research Group at DIGSSCORE.
My work has appeared in Political Communication, Journalism, Digital Journalism, Scandinavian Political Studies, and other peer-reviewed journals.
Qualifications: Journalism, political communication, selective exposure, trust, framing, affective polarization, agenda setting, media effects, mediatisation of politics, quantitative content analysis, experimental research design, public opinion and survey research.
