Short Description

I am a researcher at the intersection of social science and computer science. 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 at leading conferences. 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 – a website that communicates a scientific forecast for German Federal elections to a broad audience.
