About Me

Melissa TullyI am an Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at The University of Iowa.

I received my Ph.D. in Mass Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a minor in political science and a certificate in African studies.

My research explores how organizations (e.g., nonprofit, government, news) and members of diverse publics use digital media for social, political, and civic engagement. I am keenly interested in the communication between these organizations and the publics they serve.

I have an interest in Africa and have conducted research in Kenya, Ghana, and Burundi.
