After finishing a double bachelor’s degree 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”. I recently started my own project called ”CitizenData”, a platform for crowdsourcing structured data, which will also be a (small) part of my PhD. Mainly, I focus on news analysis and am working on a system to automatically detect media bias.


My research interests are: 

  • Media bias analysis

  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Network Analysis
