Bakgrunn og aktiviteter
Since 2016 I hold a position as Postdoctoral researcher in political communication at the Department of Political Science and Sociology at NTNU, Trondheim. I have a PhD (2011) from the Faculty of Social Science at Freie Universität Berlin, titled “Medieneinfluss im Spiegel von Akteurswahrnehmungen: Ein deutschfranzösischer Vergleich“ [Media influence perceptions: A comparison between France and Germany] and got my Magister Artium (M.A.) in Political Science with minors in French Literature and Linguistics and Communication Science from the Faculty of Social Science at Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz in 2005.
My research focuses on journalism, media systems, and political communication and is often of a comparative nature. Methodologically, my work is mainly of a quantitative nature, including methods such as regression analysis, structural equation modeling, multi-level analysis and automated text analysis of digital communications. From 2016 to 2018 I was member of the COST Action Populist Political Commnication in Europe and since 2018 I am a member of the Journalistic Role Performance around the Globe (JRP) study.
