Online journalism is my passion. I am currently teaching at Université Libre de Bruxelles, after working at Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona), University of Iowa and University of Tampere. I have researched online newsrooms and Internet uses in my home country, Catalonia, and in Europe and North America in several international projects. I have explored the factors shaping the development of online journalism, convergence, and active user involvement in online news production. I am passionate about the benefits of ethnography as a research method. My current interests include the role of professional jounalism in the digital public sphere, its relationship with active publics and the redefinition of professional identity.
