Hi. I’m Nikki Usher, an assistant professor at George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs. I am interested in the changing shape of journalism in a new media world and am particularly interested in news production and the future of journalism. In May 2011, I graduated from USC Anneberg’s School of Communication and Journalism with my PhD. I received my AB magna cum laude from Harvard University. Before coming to graduate school, I worked as a journalist. On this site, you can find information about my research, my publications and my presentations, teaching, and links to an occasional blog post. You can contact me at nikki [dot] usher [at] gmail [dot] com.
