Research interests

My research aims at investigating how individual and societal communication and media (structures) change in the context of social and technological developments and how people, but also organizations and society as a whole deal with these changes. My research relates to different areas of communication studies including digital communication, media use and effects, media structures, media economics and media regulation.
