I am an Assistant Professor at the Hubbard School of Journalism & Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota, where I am also a core faculty member with the Center for the Study of Political Psychology.

From 2020-2023, I was also a Senior Research Fellow at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford where I led the Trust in News Project.
