Junze Sun studies the impact of media in modern elections, which has been a topic for widespread concern since the Brexit referendum and the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Studies over the previous decades have primarily focused on media's electoral impact using observational data. Sun complements this approach by developing a novel theoretical framework to organise stylised empirical findings and derive new implications, which are difficult to test in field, with laboratory experiments.
