Research

My current and previous research explores issues related to ethnic and racial representations in media, political rhetoric, international communication, coverage of migrants, and news reliability. To investigate these topics I use a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods that often include big data analytics.

Teaching

My teaching philosophy is based on the premise that students should be encouraged to question everything. Challenging established ideas is what unleashes innovation and creativity. The production of environments where everyone is free to think and learn in the way that is appropriate for each individual is one of my main goals in the classroom. My role as teacher is to facilitate tools and perspectives that show students different theoretical and methodological approaches so they can develop their own projects and ideas.
