Annisa Rochadiat
Visiting Assistant Professor of Interpersonal Communication
Profile

Dr. Rochadiat’s research interests lie at the intersection of identity, culture, and social media, across various relational contexts. Trained in both quantitative (experimental, survey) and qualitative (focus group, interview, ethnography) methodologies, Dr. Rochadiat’s research ethnographically focuses on North America’s Muslim population. She is intrigued by the role of social media in shaping the formation and perpetuation of contemporary expressions of religious identity among individuals who identify as Muslim and reside in predominantly non-Muslim Anglophone societies. Dr. Rochadiat received her Ph.D. and M.A. in Communication Studies from Wayne State University (Detroit, Michigan). She also holds an M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy from the University of Leiden (The Netherlands) and a B.A. in Political Science and Southeast Asian Studies from the National University of Singapore. Prior to academia, she is a former journalist for The Jakarta Post and feature writer for Go Magazine in Amman, Jordan.
