Biography

I am an assistant professor in the College of Information Science & Technology at Drexel University. My areas of interest are in information policy, government information, and ethics. I completed my PhD at the University of Washington in July 2010. My dissertation, Identifying the enemy: Social categorization and national security policy, was a critical discourse analysis of the way threat is constructed in government-sponsored media campaigns.
