Senior Research Assistant
I am currently a Senior Research Assistant working on the Data Pitch project in the Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) department, and the Web and Internet Science research group (WAIS). Before taking on this role, I was the Coordinator of the MSc mentoring programme in ECS.
I am just about to complete my doctorate in Web Science, with a thesis about the effects of the introduction of online participation processes in the Green Party Germany. As all Web Science PhDs in Southampton, this was an interdisciplinary project, in my case situated between political sociology and human computer interaction. The doctorate followed an MSc in Web Sciene, also from Southampton, and a Bachelor's in cultural science from FernUni Hagen. Alongside my undergraduate degree, I worked in consultancy and project management. I also completed an apprenticeship as a bookseller.
