I am a research member in the project "Political Influencer", which is located at the department of political science. After receiving my Bachelor's Degree in the field of sociology and educational science I specialized in Sociology at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena and graduated in March 2021. In my master thesis, I made qualitative research on self-presentation on Instagram and figured a way out to make ephemeral content on Social Media accessible for ethnographical work. I feel at home with qualitative and quantitative research equally and I am especially interested in explorative designs. On a theoretical level, I'm concentrating a lot on digital technologies and technical sociology. Aside I’m working on a fruitful link between Foucault and Goffman.
