Research Project

There are three main streams of research in which I am working at the moment. The first one considers how people consume political information online and the level of fragmentation of the digital news domain. To this end I am using digital data to map the Spanish online news sphere taking into account the relationship and the aggregate audience of top outlets.

The second one and by means of network science aims at explaining how Internet is affecting the traditional role of legacy news organizations as elites within the political communication process.

Finally the third one, focuses on the effects of online media diets in the public agenda. By combining survey and navigation data from a panel, I shed light on how the online high-choice information environment enriches the public agenda and guarantees the necessary common ground for the functioning of democracies.
