Ericka Menchen-Trevino at HBI

Ericka Menchen-Trevino, Ass. Professor at the School of Communication at the American University in Washington, DC, visited the HBI in August 2022.  Among other things, she is supporting the HBI project "Tracking Political Polarization" with her expertise.

Ericka also met with Lisa Merten, Gregor Wiedemann and Jan-Hinrik Schmidt as well as Prof. Dr. Katharina Kleinen-von Königslöw from the University of Hamburg and Mareike Wieland, GESIS, for an initial exchange on the application of digital methods in researching forms of media use.

Her research interests lie at the intersection of political communication and digital media studies, with a focus on methodology.

Her work has been published in academic journals including Political Behavior, the International Journal of Press/Politics, New Media & Society, Social Media + Society.

She has also developed open-source software to integrate the collection of web browsing trace data with other social science methods (surveys, interviews, and experiments) and used this software to collect data in large and small-scale research projects in multiple countries.

She is in the process of writing a book with the working title “Researching Digital Traces” that advances a methodological approach to guide the technical and ethical development of trace data research.

Ericka earned her Ph.D. at Northwestern University in 2012, and she previously worked as an Assistant Professor at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands from 2012-2015. [14.08.2022]
