I received my Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge (UK) in 1992, and have been teaching at NDSU since 1993. In addition to teaching, I coordinate the department's interdisciplinary major and minor in new media and web design.
As a media historian, my research specialties cover World War I (1914-1918), United States frontier journalism, and French journalism. I also specialize in photography history and research, and am working on a photography textbook.
I teach a variety of mass communication subjects including photography, design, editing, media history and graduate seminars. I will be on research leave spring semester 2016.
