I research innovation in the media industries with a particular focus on how news organizations use data traces to inform and shape decisions and on the digital business models of news. My background is in media studies, and throughout my career, I have followed and explored how the news industry adapts to the digital age. Some of my recent publications concern structural properties of digitalization, subscription on local news websites, news startups, and the theoretical concept of affordances.
I am also Head of Studies at ITU. In that capacity, I am in charge of quality assurance and strategic development of ITU’s 10 study programs.
This website is my online business card with information about my professional activities and a work-related (though very infrequently updated) blog. The website is also a way for me to keep track of what I do.
I strongly believe in collaborations and in broadening my scope through interaction with practitioners, fellow researchers, the general public, and others. So do reach out – I look forward to hearing from you.
