Hannah is a first year PhD student, and a two-time graduate of the University of Miami. She completed the Fellows in Latin American Studies program at UM and then worked at a local polling firm before deciding to return to academia. Her graduate work explored concepts of cross-cultural media production, with a focus on Spanish-language mass media in the United States. She employs a practical approach alongside theory, often producing audio and visual components to her work.
Hannah’s research interests lie more broadly in cross-cultural communication; demographic representation in media production; the intersection of information, advertising, and entertainment; and concepts of social justice and political participation as perceived, exercised, and imagined through mainstream as well as digital and social media.
