In October 2016, I began my studies for the Master’s Degree in Political Science at the University of Bremen with focus on public policy and comparative politics. Before that, I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz with a thesis about the reintroduction of the data retention law in Germany. In the last three years, I became increasingly interested in the field of law and order politics.
From June 2016 until June 2017, I co-organized the student’s-research project #Energienetzwerke, funded by the Foundation of German Business (Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft – sdw) and the innogy Foundation for Energy and Society. In this project, we analyzed the public discourse about the energy transformation in Germany between 2013 and 2017 in quality newspapers with a discourse network analysis.
In the working group of Tinette Schnatterer, I’m involved in data-preparation, especially data from the Politbarometer, monthly published in the second channel of German television (ZDF), and press releases by the factions of parliamentary parties in the German Bundestag.
Besides my study, I’m an active member of the Young European Federalists (JEF) in Bremen, a nonpartisan, pro-European youth organization. During the last years, I co-organized an excursion to Brussels, several weekly meetings and other activities for JEF.
