In the classroom
I teach news reporting, content strategy, and media analytics on the undergraduate level and media theory, mass communication and society, media law and ethics, and data journalism on the graduate level. I also teach courses about eyewitness misidentification, pseudoscience, and conspiracy theories in the Honors College.

I previously taught journalism and media studies courses and seminars at Point Park University and Michigan State University, in both the College of Communication Arts & Sciences and James Madison College. I also created and taught a business journalism course at Ball State after I was selected as a Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism Fellow for training by experienced reporters, data scientists, and journalism educators from all around the country. I also have been selected for the National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) faculty fellowship program.
