About Elena Broda
I have worked as a PhD student at JMG since January 2020. Originally from Germany, I graduated from the University of Passau with a master’s degree in Political Science in 2019. My main focus during my studies was Political Communication and I wrote my thesis on information flow and framing between political elites and alternative media in the US.
Throughout my studies, I worked as a research assistant at the Department of Political Science at the University of Passau, where I was involved in several research projects on political communication and populism. My responsibilities spanned publisher communication, editing but also data collection and analysis.
My research interests include misinformation (and related concepts such as disinformation and fake news), political knowledge, attitude formation, audience studies, media effects and mixed methods.
