I am Professor at the Department of Communication and Journalism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem & Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Communication. My research is in the fields of political communication and journalism, with a particular interest in the temporal dimensions of journalism and the role played by the news media in constructing and negotiating collective pasts and futures. I am currently leading the ERC-funded project “Mediating the Future: The Social Dynamics of Public Projections” (PROFECI) and take part in a couple of international research networks, including The Worlds of Journalism Study and Project NET, a study of the consumption of news, entertainment, and technology in Argentina, Finland, Israel, Japan, and the United States.
My work has been published in leading journals (see the Publications section) and has received several prestigious international awards, among them the International Communication Association's Outstanding Article Award (2014), the inaugural Outstanding Dissertation Award of the International Communication Association's Political Communication Division (2013), and the ICA Political Communication Best Article of the Year Award (2010).
I also serve as head of the Internship Program of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and served as Chair of the Journalism Studies Division at the International Communication Association (2018-2020). I received my PhD in 2011 from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.
