Skjeseth has worked as Dagsavisen's USA correspondent for the past six years. She has an MA from Columbia School of Journalism.
At Oxford, she will study the media coverage of Donald Trump's presidential election, and how Trump and European right-wing populists' use different media to get their message across. She will also examine how the media deal with the comprehensive use of factual errors and incorrect information in this year's election campaign and public debate.
