Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

Since 2016, I hold a position as Postdoctoral Fellow in political communication at the Department of Sociology and Political Science at NTNU, Trondheim. I have a PhD (2011) from the Faculty of Social Science at Freie Universität Berlin, and a Magister Artium (M.A. degree) in Political Science with minors in French Literature and Linguistics and Communication Science from the Faculty of Social Science at Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz (JoGu Mainz, 2005).

My research focuses on journalism, media systems, and political communication from an actor-centric perspective. Specific research areas:

- Media percpetions of political elites

- Interaction of politicians and journalists in news production

- Media systems: journalistic roles and cultures, political influence and political bias

- Communicative behavior of political elites (e.g. populist discourse in campaigns)
