As an assistant professor in telecommunications with a focus on law and regulation, I primarily teach Telecommunications Law & Regulation (undergrad – required) and Telecommunications Regulation (grad) along with Communicating Privacy (grad), and currently Introduction to Media and Communications (undergrad). As graduate faculty, I serve as a member of many thesis/dissertation committees both within the College of Journalism and Communications and other colleges. I also advise undergraduate senior projects.

This senior-level undergraduate course is required of all telecommunications majors. It is a media law survey course aimed at providing students with foundational knowledge of subjects like the First Amendment, copyright, defamation, privacy, etc.
RTV5702: Telecommunications Regulation
This graduate seminar presents an advanced, interdisciplinary discussion of telecommunication and information law, policy, and regulation. In examining these topics, the course emphasizes the intersection of technology, economics, public policy, and human and organizational behavior. Ultimately the course investigates the justifications for, and approaches to, current law and regulation impacting the technology and information sectors. Students to prepare questions and thoughts on readings in advance of class and to participate in class discussions and are required to complete policy papers that are submitted to national/international conferences. The course will soon be retitled, Technology Policy, and will cover media/communications technology more broadly and attract a more diverse group of students.
