My current research is focused on two separate projects: one on local news ecologies and the interaction between production and consumption of local news, the other (together with Cecilia Möller) on people who have left journalism for other jobs. Previously I have conducted research on comparative European journalism; media and democracy in Central and Eastern Europe; comparative media history; and transmedia entertainment from a historical perspective. My most recent book is Newsworkers: A Comparative European Perspective (Bloomsbury, 2016). I am currently the Editor-in-Chief of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Journalism Studies (Oxford University Press, forthcoming).
