J. Scott Brennen
I study scientific information, misinformation and deformation in the contemporary media environment. My research asks how changing digital technologies and media cultures shape how scientific knowledge is produced and translated into and across the public.
I co-lead the Oxford Martin School Programme on Misinformation, Science, and Media (SciMis) at the University of Oxford. I am also a post-doctoral research fellow at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism and the Oxford Internet Institute.
I received my doctorate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2018.
