I am a Professor of Sociology and Computational Social Sciences at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. My work focuses on applying computational methods to interdisciplinary research in areas such as ethnic minority & gender studies, digital media, political communication, and sociotechnical systems. I am particularly interested in methods related to natural language processing, image recognition, and data mining.
Results of my work have been published in journals such as Computers in Human Behavior, European Sociological Review, Sociology, Social Media + Society, and European Journal of Political Research.
In addition to research, I have held courses and workshops on Data Analysis, Data Mining, Quantitative Text Analysis, and Political Sociology at several universities and institutes in Amsterdam, Bamberg, Berlin, Konstanz, and Stuttgart.
