Research area(s)

I am interested in the intersection of Press. Politics and Development in emerging democracies in the Global South. My speciality is in African political economy and media.

Research Interests

My research investigates two related areas: the nature of the relationship of media systems to broader structure of society. Specifically, it examines how media content reinforce, challenge or influence existing class and political relations. Second, it looks at how ownership, advertising and state policies influence media production, distribution and consumption; with forward and backward linkages to public opinion, political culture and democracy.
