Associate Professor of Communication, Political Science, and Environmental Policy and Faculty Associate with the Mershon Center for International Security Studies, The Ohio State University

Broadly, my expertise centers on three areas: a) media and international affairs - mostly in terms of American-Islamic relations and Public Diplomacy, b) media and comparative democratization - primarily in the MENA region and Africa and c) and public opinion about controversial science.

I am an affiliate faculty member with the Mershon Center for International Security Studies at the Ohio State University and co-Principal Investigator for the Comparative National Election Project hosted by Mershon.
