More About the Author
Nikki Usher's research and teaching interests focus on the transforming world of digital media, from journalism to big data to information and communication technologies (ICTs). Her background in media theory and effects, sociology, and communication has given her an appreciation of the wide-range of possibilities for discussing and analyzing today's media environment--from the changing nature of politics and social media to open government to hacking to the challenges and opportunities facing today's news landscape.
Her primary area of research focuses on how journalism is adapting to change. For much of this research, she has traveled to newsrooms across the world and the U.S. to learn about how journalists do their work and the decisions facing these news organizations in difficult times. From her initial research at The New York Times, which has now led to a book, to research at Al Jazeera, The Guardian, the BBC, the AP, NPR, The Washington Post, and the list continues. She is considered an influential voice in the future of news conversation, and has been asked to weigh in on annual news round ups for the past few years on topics such as social media to the rise of niche news. She primarily uses field research, ethnographic methods, and other qualitative work to discern patterns about news production.
