Lecturer in Journalism and Communications, University of Galway

I’m the programme director for the Global Media and Communication MA at National University Ireland Galway and I also teach journalism (social media) in the undergraduate and graduate programmes with a focus on social and digital journalism and media theory.

My research agenda is focused on the ways in which social media have impacted journalism and I am particularly interested in the ways that bad-faith actors are weaponising journalism norms in a social and digital media context. I draw from Andrew Chadwick’s hybrid media theory in understanding how social media has created new ways that information can flow in a hybrid media environment.
