I love working with news articles and in general text documents. Specifically, my research focuses on the automated identification of media bias in news articles. My research interests are:

  • Media bias and content analysis
  • Text analysis
  • Natural language processing (NLP)
  • Information retrieval

I believe in open access and strive to release my research projects as soon as they are ready for the public. You can find them listed on the right or on GitHub.


Most of the projects and theses that I supervise are concerned with text analysis and natural language processing. For information on possible projects just have a look at the News Analysis section in our list of project topics or drop me an email.
