I am a social scientist and lecturer at the department of Sociology with Focus on Quantitative Methods for Social Research, Goethe University Frankfurt. My research focuses on immigration, ethnic conflict, political communication and public opinion. To test my ideas against the real world, I mostly draw upon longitudinal and multi-national data, quantitative text analysis and computational social science tools. My work has been published in top general journals like European Sociological Review and Social Forces, as well as in specialized journals such as Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, International Migration Review, and Ethnic and Racial Studies.
In addition to researching, I teach courses on quantitative methods and conducting analytical-empirical studies for students of the social sciences (English and German, online and offline) and supervise BA and MA theses.
