I came to Manchester in September 2018 as a Presidential Fellow in Sociology. I received my PhD in 2015 at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Konstanz, Germany. During that time, I was also a member of the Graduate School of Decision Sciences. My thesis focused on theoretical advancements for network centrality in the field of social network analysis. I continued as a post doctoral researcher at the University of Konstanz (11/2015-10/2017) and ETH Zurich (11/2017-8/2018).  I also hold a diploma in economathematics from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. 

In my current research, I focus on methodological and theoretical contributions to the field of Social Network Analysis. Additionally, I am involved in a project on disinformation campaigns on social media platforms ("political astroturfing").
