Introduction
I am currently a data scientist at the Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society and a PhD candidate at the Institute for Media and Communication Studies, Freie Universität Berlin. My research focus lies on the measurement of mobile media use and quantitative methodology. I am offering workshops on data analysis using R and Python with a focus on strengthening basic programming skills. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested.

Chapter
360°-(3D-)Video-Projekte haben häufig einen anwendungsbezogenen Charakter, der es Nutzer*innen ermöglicht, auf einfache Art und Weise in eine aufgezeichnete, reale Umgebung einzutauchen. Durch die sinkenden Kosten dieser Technologie wird ihr Einsatz auch im universitären Kontext immer attraktiver – sowohl in der Forschung als auch in der Lehre. Übe...
Research Proposal

Just like all types of media use, mobile media use is usually measured using retrospective, self-reported indications of quanitity in the form of duration and frequency. This is not only problematic due to the fact that people misjudge their own use to a great extent, but also because theoretical approaches predominantly suggest that mere contact i...

Like all media use, smartphone use is mostly being measured retrospectively with self-reports. This leads to misjudgments due to subjective aggregations and interpretations that are necessary for providing answers. Tracking is regarded as the most advanced, unbiased, and precise method for observing smartphone use and therefore employed as an alter...

People with mental disorders such as schizophrenia do not only suffer from the symptoms of their disorders but also from the stigma attached to it. Although direct intergroup contact is an effective tool to reduce stigmatization, it is rare in real life and costly to be established in interventions, and the success of traditional media campaigns is...

Listening to music can cause experiences of nostalgia and melancholia. Although both concepts are theoretically related, to date they have not been analyzed together. In this study, we identify their theoretical underpinnings and determine how they can be measured empirically. We analyze how listening to music causes nostalgia and melancholia, and...
Presentation
In this workshop, I taught the basics of using R/RStudio and their application to univariate, bivariate and multivariate statistics.

Archived project
In this project, we investigated whether encountering a person with schizophrenia can reduce stigmatization towards schizophrenics.
Project
This project is part of my doctoral thesis. It aims to investigate patterns of smartphone use with a focus on the methodology of tracking.
