More information about Rebekah Tromble

Dr. Tromble is an Assistant Professor of Political Communication. Her research and teaching focus on online political discourse and its effects on political attitudes and behaviour, digital research methods and ethics, and computational social science.

She is currently the principal investigator on a multi-university project selected by Twitter to help the platform assess the “health of conversations” on the platform. She is also co-leading “The (Mis)Informed Citizen” project, funded in part by the Alan Turing Institute (ATI). Along with researchers at the ATI, she is developing computational tools to help analyze the quality of online news articles and, in turn, study what types of information people are exposed to online, as well as the impacts of such exposure on people’s knowledge, attitudes, and political participation.

Dr. Tromble is available to supervise PhD students and invites PhD research proposals in the areas of:

  • Political communication
  • Computational political science
  • Digital research methods and/or ethics
