The core question driving my research agenda is: In what ways are environmental activists using new media technologies to challenge socio-political power structures? In my research, I explore the evolving nature of collective action in the networked society through the lens of transnational activism on energy and climate issues.
My research has appeared in leading science communication and social media journals, including: Environmental Communication, Public Understanding of Science and Social Media + Society. I have forthcoming work in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Climate Change Communication, a special project of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Climate Science.
In addition, I have presented research at major communications and social media conferences, including: the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC), the International Communication Association (ICA), the International Conference on Social Media & Society and the World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR)-Latin America.
