About: I am a visiting researcher at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center and the Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society. At the WZB I am associated with the research group Politics of Digitalization. At the Weizenbaum Institute I was a member of the now concluded research group Quantification and Social Regulation and currently I am associated with the newly founded research group Technology, Power and Governance.
My PhD thesis investigates computational modeling practices in algorithmic governance. It is a qualitative study of the processes in which epistemic communities create computational models of the social world and mobilize them as resources in societal coordination. The thesis is supervised by Jan-Peter Voß and Jan-Hendrik Passoth.
