I am currently an Associate Editor of Psychology of Popular Media and serve on the editorial boards of Journal of Media Psychology and Communication Research Reports. I also review manuscripts for numerous peer-reviewed journals in the field.

Additionally, I have held officer positions for professional organizations such as the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) and the National Communication Association (NCA). I am former Co-Chair of the Entertainment Studies Interest Group for AEJMC and served on the nominations committee of the Mass Communication Division for NCA.

At Boston University, I am former Co-Director of the Communication Research Center. I also advise bachelor, master, and doctoral students in the fields of communication, psychology, international relations, education, and sociology on their thesis and dissertation projects.
