Christian Staal Bruun Overgaard

Ph.D. Student

Bio

Freelance journalism (written for Danish magazines, newspapers and websites). Blogging (in Danish). Podcasting (also in Danish).

BSc in Economics and Business Administration from the University of Southern Denmark; MSc in Economics and Business Administration from the University of Southern Denmark. (As part of my MSc, I spent a semester at New Bucks University in England, studying Psychology.)

My research interests lie at the intersection of Journalism and Psychology. I'm interested in how news media influence people. (How does news coverage affect people's attitudes, beliefs and behavior?) I'm especially interested in Constructive Journalism and Solutions Journalism, two journalistic approaches that aim to mitigate the negative bias that pervades modern media.
