Jaime Alonso is full professor of Journalism. He obtained a B.A. degree in Journalism in 1995 and defended his doctoral thesis in 2004. He currently teaches Information Technology and Communication Techniques at the School of Communication and Documentation of the University of Murcia.

Since the year 2000, his research has focused on exploratory and descriptive work on the so-called new media, as well as on other forms of communication that have emerged on the Internet. Currently, his work focuses on the study of the application of technology in the online media, and specifically on the phenomenon of participation (analysis of the involvement and use of Web 2.0 technologies in media production).

At present, he is also part of the national project “La evolución de los cibermedios en el marco de la convergencia digital” (The evolution of the online media in the context of digital convergence) (2009-2012), which is funded by Spain’s Ministry of Science and Technology (code CS02009-13713-C05-02).
