Research Interest

I’m generally interested in working on digitalization for the greater good. A particular interested is shaping the field of digital democracy with a strong focus digital citizen participation. I was working on several research projects, including projects examining the effects of augmented and virtual reality, and projects aiming at combating fake news. I’m furthermore working on democratic platform design and working on de-polarizing the digital society.
