Emma is Lecturer in Journalism, Politics and Communication at the University of Sheffield. She joined the Department of Journalism Studies in September 2017, having previously worked at Coventry University and the University of Manchester. Her research focuses on the role of the media and conflict-affected areas. She has examined foreign conflict reporting of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict by Russian, French and UK television news providers and also audience perceptions of this reporting. She discusses this in her book, European Foreign Conflict Reporting: A Comparative Analysis of Public News Providers, published by Routledge. In 2016, Emma was awarded British Academy funding for her current project, which investigates the role of local radio in NGO activities in war-affected zones. She has conducted extensive fieldwork in the West Bank.
