I am a Ph.D. candidate and Research Associate at the Technical University of Darmstadt (since 05/2022) working at the intersection of Data Science and Political Science. Before that, I graduated from the University of Mannheim with a Master degree in Data Science. As a team member of the Social Science Data Lab Blog based at the Mannheim Center for European Social Research (MZES), I do both, supporting the organization and implementation of workshops as well as contributing blog posts and input talks.
I enjoy analyzing all forms of political communication (e.g., social media, speeches, or press releases) with both, state-of-the-art machine learning models and traditional approaches to answer substantial research questions in Political Science. In the course of my Master thesis I developed a framework to estimate legislator-level salience and position estimates based on political text using Transformers. In Fall 2022 I will teach a postgraduate seminar at TU Darmstadt providing an introduction to quantitative methods in R for political scientists. My substantial interests focus on political communication and intra-party heterogeneity.
