Research Focus

I work on Media, science, policy and Culture. I am interested to study on the representation of issues such as science, disasters, and political events in media. Generally, I try to understand how Iranian media communicate science and policy to public and explain the social image that media representation of science and policy does make.

Since 2015, I have studied on citizen science as a basic concept in science museums. I am interested in interactions of various types of knowledge as tacit, public and scientific ones.
