Research Bio

You can find my CV here.

(1) Media, Religion, and Politics: As a student at Georgetown University’s Edmund Walsh School of Foreign Service, I became interested in understanding the relationship between media and religious organizations, specifically in Turkey. After completing my Master’s in Near Eastern Studies at New York University’s Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, I researched transnational religious movements in Turkey and their use of digital media while pursuing another Master’s in Anthropology at Columbia University.

(2) Organizational Culture, Science Communication, and Visual Media: With a PhD from New York University’s Media, Culture and Communication department, I studied the transformation of the Jackson Laboratory into a pioneer of genomic and personalized medicine, chronicling the shifts in organizational culture and communication practices, particularly those concerning cancer research.

(3) Global Pedagogy: Over the past decade, I have presented and researched pedagogical approaches to transform classrooms into global and civic spaces in higher education.

(4) Communication and the Future of Work: As the director of the Communication Leadership program, my current research project explores the changing role of professional communication across fields and initiatives by professionals to establish new communication-based practices in their organizations
