Dr. Kelly Garrett is Senior Research Fellow, University of California, Irvine, Center for Research on Information Technology and Organizations (CRITO).

In this talk Dr. Garrett will focus on two interconnected questions, how contemporary use of the Internet is influencing citizens overall exposure to political information?
