Hi, I’m Bridget Barrett.

I’m a PhD student and Roy H. Park Fellow at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and research lead for the digital political ads project at the Center for Information, Technology and Public Life (CITAP).

I’m interested in how new media technologies developed for the commercial advertising industry impact political messaging online. And, in turn, how this changed messaging may impact people’s understanding of politics.
