I am a digital humanist and public relations consultant. My work in recent years has been mostly focused digital and social media strategies, (digital) storytelling and public relations evaluation and measurement, including social media.

I have served American and European clients, both from the profit and the non-profit sector including Netlog from Belgium, Help Our World from Brazil, Coca-Cola in Romania, Deloitte in the USA, Fresenius Kabi in Germany and Continental Tires. I have also spoken at various events in the world including the prestigious European Communication Summit (a full list of my industry and academic engagements is available on this website under the Consultancy and Research and Publications sections).

I am currently a Professor of Public Relations/Corporate Communications at Quadriga University of Applied Sciences in Berlin. Prior to my role here, I have held lecturing and research posts in the UK, Belgium and Bahrain.

Since 2015, I am chairing the Digital Communication Awards, an exciting competition celebrating innovation, creativity and strategic applications of digital communications. Also since 2015, I am a member of the core research team of the Asia-Pacific Communication Monitor, a large-scale survey associated with the European Communication Monitor and the Latin American Communication Monitor, assessing the trends and challenges in communication in the region. More recently, I have joined the organising committee of MediAsia, an interdisciplinary conference on media, communication and film, held in Tokyo, Japan.

I have graduated with a PhD from University of the West of Scotland, with a project focusing on framing China’s human rights during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games as done by Olympic organizers, international advocacy groups, online traditional media outlets and their public. Prior to my doctorate I have studied Public Relations, Strategic Communication, Management and Business Communication in RomaniaBelgium and the United States.
