I am currently postdoctoral research associate at the University of Hohenheim, Germany and senior researcher in the ERC-funded project on the Social Foundations of Online Gaming at the University of Münster. My main research interests are online communication and quantitative methods, especially data collection and statistical modeling. I also enjoy developing software, mostly for content analysis and other means of data mining and analysis.
