I am the Head of the Department of communication and behavioral sciences (KOB). I hold a PhD in media and communication. 

My research interests revolve around discourse, ideology and political power in journalism and other media. I have approached these issues in studies on the news media's reporting on drugs, environmental issues and class related issues.
