Since October 2013, I’ve worked as a research assistant and PhD candidate under Prof. Dr. Sigrid Quack at the Institute of Sociology, University Duisburg-Essen. I studied social sciences with an emphasis on sociology, political science and economics at the Philipps-University Marburg and completed my master’s degree in sociology at the University of Vienna. I am particularly interested in the linkage between sociological theory and empirical research, with a special focus on new media phenomena.
