Her research –which has been published in more than 30 journal articles and book chapters– has been funded by the nationally-competitive National Science and Technology Development Fund, the International Development Research Centre from Canada, National Fund for the Study of Pluralism in the Media System and the American Association of Family and Consumer Science.
She has also received numerous awards including top-papers in communication conferences and the American Association of University Women Fellowship. During her time as Tinker Visiting Professor, she teaches the class “Women, gender and digital media in global perspective.”
