Hi 👋, I am an interdisciplinary researcher at the University of Mannheim (Germany) working at the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Computational Political Science.

🎓 I hold a master degree in Computer Science (2018, with a minor in Philosophy) and a master degree in Political Science (2019) from the Technical University Darmstadt (Germany). 🐾 During my studies, I spent a semester abroad 🇨🇭 (2016/2017) at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich as a special student and research assistant at the Computational Social Science lab (ETH Zurich, Switzerland). Before my PhD journey at the University of Mannheim, I worked as a researcher in Natural Language Processing at the UKP lab (Technical University Darmstadt, Germany) (2018-2021). During my PhD, I was also a visiting researcher 🎒 at Cologne Center for Comparative Politics in 2023 and in the junior researcher program for a research visit at GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in 2024 🥳.

Since 2022, I have been co-organizing the tada.cool speaker series (w/ >30 speakers) as well as the workshop on Computational Linguistics for Political and Social Sciences (KONVENS 2022, 2023 & 2024). I have also supported the BigScience/ BLOOM project (2022) and, currently, the Data Provenance Initiative (2023-today).

👥 Besides research, I am an academic coach. I have worked as a certified writing coach ✍️ at the Computer Science writing lab University of Hagen (Germany) and the SchreibCenter at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Since 2020 I am also a qualified stress management trainer 🧠 (DADeSp, Technical University Darmstadt, 2020) with focus on the academic and university context. As part of my support for the FirstGen initiative ArbeiterKind, I conduct free open time and stress management workshops and I have started an initiative to establish an open virtual writing lab.

For 2024, I have planned to be in Bochum (GER) in February ✔️, Birmingham (UK) in March ✔️, Oxford (UK) ✔️ and Grenoble (FR) ✔️ in April, Amsterdam (NE) in May ✔️, Cologne (GER) in April✔️/May, Oxford (UK)✔️, London (UK)✔️ and Cologne (GER)✔️ in July, Vienna (AU), Zurich (CH) and Göttingen (GER) in September, and other places to be decided. I would be happy to chat ☕️ about CSS if anyone is around during these times. Please feel free to send me a message.
