About Me

Hi, I'm Jakob Kemper. I'm a political scientist and work as a project officer in the project 'POLITSOLID. The Ties that Bind - Experimental Analyses of Political Solidarities in Modern European Democracies' (principal investigator Prof. Dr. Achim Goerres and project manager Dr. Jan Karem Höhne) at the Department of Political Science at the University of Duisburg-Essen. I plan to pursue a PhD with a research focus on political solidarity, social trust, experimental research and statistical methods.

In 2021, I completed my master's degree in Methods of Social Science Research at the Ruhr University Bochum. Before that, I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of Duisburg-Essen.

I spent a semester abroad at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA, USA.
For my BA thesis in 2018, I conducted a field experiment on the responsiveness of support offices of Bundestag MPs. I found that, on average, senders with foreign names are treated worse.
For my MA thesis in 2021, I used Natural Language Processing to analyse plenary speeches in all German state parliaments (Landtage) and found no significant deterioration in the level of civility after the right-wing populist party AfD entered the Landtag.
