I am a postdoctoral researcher at the department Computational Social Science at GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences and lecturer at the institute for Web Science and technologies at University of Koblenz-Landau.
I received my PhD from Umea University in 2015. I have written my thesis entitled “Tightly Knit: Spreading processes in temporal networks” under the supervision of Prof. Petter Holme and Prof. Martin Rosvall.
During my PhD and postdoctoral I have carried out several international collaborations and research visits, including visiting researcher at Keio University (Oct. 2018), Integrated Science Laboratory (Icelab), Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (DTU) and ISI foundation.
My current research focuses on computational approaches for addressing societal challenges such as gender inequality, bias in algorithms and ranking and sampling hard-to-reach groups and minorities. In addition, I focus on variety of social processes using network theoretic approach such as emergence of culture, spreading of information and perception biases by using mathematical models, digital traces and online experiments.
