Dr. Edda Humprecht

Political Communication & News Researcher


I am an Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim. Previously, I worked at the University of Zurich, Switzerland where I also received my PhD.
My research focuses on online communication and the changing digital landscape. I study the extent to which digitalization offers new opportunity structures for the spread of phenomena such as disinformation, conspiracy narratives, and hate speech. I am interested in the effects of manipulative communication and ways to empower news users against such manipulation.
My research has been recognised with several awards and I am currently on the editorial board of Digital Journalism and Human Communication Research.
