After being the first ever student in Passau to finish a double bachelor’s degree (360 Credits) in ”Internet Computing” (Computer Science) and "Media and Communications”, I followed up on
my research interest in data science and data driven journalism by pursuing a master’s degree in ”Social and Economic Data Analysis”. Having made my way from journalism to computer science, I especially like working with news 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 analysis

  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Network Analysis
