Michael Soha

Michael Soha is a lecturer of communication at the University of New Hampshire (UNH), where he has been teaching for five years. He specializes in media and politics, specifically the study of social media, news, and political coverage. Charlotte Harris has taken several classes with him, and they discovered that they both share interests in Latin America and comparative news media coverage. They have worked together for about a year on Charlotte’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) project and on her honors thesis. Although Charlotte is his first Inquiry author mentee, he has a wealth of experience in mentorship, having worked with many students on thesis projects, Undergraduate Research Conference presentations, independent studies, and the like. He enjoys mentoring students who are independent and determined, such as Charlotte, and helping them delve deeply into the research process. He praises Inquiry for its ability to reach general audiences while challenging authors to write succinctly about their overall research processes.
