- Postdoctoral Researcher -
I am the digital humanities postdoc in the ERC project "Network Epistemology in Practice." Here I combine and utilize methods of network analysis and AI-based language modeling to investigate the structure and dynamics of communication networks at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). I also apply these methods more broadly to compare field-specific vocabularies in particle physics and astrophysics.
My previous research interests include public science communication in traditional and new media, particularly Wikipedia, as well as the perception of biomedical translation among researchers and clinicians in Germany. Additionally, I have made fundamental contributions to the theoretical description of "Policy Instrument Constituencies," a central concept in contemporary policy theory.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Social Sciences from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and a Master's degree in Science Studies from Universität Bielefeld. In 2016, I earned my Ph.D. from TU Berlin with a dissertation on the discursive construction of emissions trading as a "working" policy instrument.
