Research Interest

My primary area of concentration revolves around computational social sciences, where I leverage data science techniques to address societal issues. To accomplish this, I employ methodologies such as natural language processing and statistical modeling. Presently, my research includes hate speech classification and the analysis of social sentiment within the context of the SOSEC project at FZI. 


FZI House of Participation 

I am a member of the House of Participation (HoP), an FZI competence center fostering digital participation and democracy. At HoP, we focus on creating impactful digital interactions that enable all individuals to participate in decision-making across various spheres including the workplace, social life, cultural sector and political matters. If you are a student looking for an assistant position (Hiwi), a seminar, bachelor or master thesis opportunity, we are always seeking passionate and committed individuals to join our team and contribute to shaping the digital democracy.
