Marie K. Shanahan is an assistant professor of journalism at the University of Connecticut.
She spent 17 years as a reporter and online news editor before joining the faculty at UConn's nationally accredited journalism program. She teaches digital newsgathering techniques, various forms of multimedia storytelling and online ethics.
Shanahan's academic research explores the intersection of journalism and digital technology, focusing on trends in online commenting, anonymous online speech, and digital reputation.
Admittedly, she spends way too much time on social media.
