I am a PhD 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 political methodology, where I am specifically interested in the application of deep learning algorithms to social science problems. My substantive interests include voting behavior, political campaigns and forecasting elections. For my research I implemented a large scale field experiment within a partisan campaign, I am also interested in Social Media data and contributed to the research with a large Voting Advice Application.
My work has been published in the Politische Vierteljahresschrift (PVS) and in Political Analysis. I also had the opportunity to present some of my recent work at the International Methods Colloquium.
Furthermore, I am co-founder, contributor and the visualizationist of zweitstimme.org – a website that communicated a scientific forecast for the German Federal election 2017 to a broad audience.
