I am a Ph.D. Candidate and Research Associate at the chair of Political Science, Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences at the University of Mannheim.
My research focuses on quantitative methodology, where I am specifically interested in the application of deep learning algorithms to social science problems. Substantively, I am interested in the prediction of political behavior and the ethical implications of new trends in applied social science research like Big Data and Artificial Intelligence with a focus on privacy. I have published multiple papers in internationally renowned journals and through invited talks I got the chance to communicate the results of my research to international audiences.
Furthermore, I am co-founder, contributor and the visualizationist of zweitstimme.org – a website that communicates a scientific forecast for German Federal elections to a broad audience.
