I am Research Fellow at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES) with a special focus on online and offline political participation, political communication, digital media, social capital and social network analysis. In 2011-2013 I was Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow at the MZES, University of Mannheim, where I currently conduct research on (online) civic and political engagement, and teach political communication and internet politics. As of February 2016 I am also invited lecturer at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, where I teach a course on theories and methods in new media political communication, at the School’s Master of Public Policy.
