I’m a social scientist/statistician and currently work at the research data center of the German Center for Higher Education Research and Science Studies. In a team with software developers, I work on the metadata management system of the research data center at DZHW GmbH where I’m mainly responsible for software testing and metadata management. Check out our github repository. Besides that, I prepare data to disseminate them in the form of scientific use files and campus use files.
Previously I’ve been a data scientist at respondi AG doing market research (2017-2018). I was a researcher at Clemens Kroneberg’s chair Sociology I from 2016 to 2017 and gave a course on analytical sociology for Bachelor students. From 2013 to 2016 I was a PhD student at the SOCLIFE graduate school where I started my PhD on Coleman’s intergenerational closure hypothesis. I have a Master of Science in Methodology and Statistics of Social and Behavioral Science from Utrecht University and a Bachelor in Sociology from Mannheim University.
