Meredith’s award-winning interdisciplinary, methodologically agnostic research is rooted in feminist media studies and uses a combination of quantitative computational and qualitative techniques (e.g., critical computational studies) to explore and critique supremacism, far-right media and politics, including the mis/disinformation and conspiracy thinking circulated by and through these groups across a variety of platforms and channels.
