Tiffany Gallicano has practiced public relations for a U.S. Senate campaign, two large public relations agencies, a nonprofit organization, and an educational institution.
Gallicano was named a Page Legacy Scholar for 2011-2012 with Tom Bivins and Yoon Cho. They worked on a grant from the Arthur W. Page Center for Integrity in Public Communication about the ethics of executive and political ghost blogging based on a survey of blog readers.
In addition, Gallicano examined ghost blogging from the perspectives of public relations practitioners with co-authors Kevin Brett and Toby Hopp. In March 2012, they won the Jackson-Sharpe award at the International Public Relations Research Conference for this research project. The award was for the best study bridging theory and practice that is jointly authored by a scholar and a public relations practitioner.
Gallicano also won the Jackson-Sharpe award in 2010 with Pat Curtin and Kelli Matthews for a PRSA-sponsored study that examined how Millennial PR agency practitioners approach ethical decision making. Related research projects include how PR agencies can cultivate strong relationships with Millennial practitioners and views of diversity in the workplace by Millennial agency practitioners.
In 2008, Gallicano received an award from the Institute for Public Relations for the "Best New Research on the Personal Influence Model of Public Relations." Her research has been published in the Journal of Public Relations Research, Public Relations Journal, Public Relations Review, Journal of Communication Management, and PRism.
