Subject

The focus of my scientific work lies on the simulation of social phenomena using agent-based modeling. One of my projects aims to investigate the effectivity of non-pharmaceutical interventions in the COVID19-pandemic. In another project, I examine mechanisms of disorder generation in non-floating sharing-systems (e.g. bike-sharing). In addition to the application and development of simulation methods, I also work on the analysis of press releases of the German police and their effect on political attitudes.

In teaching, I primarily offer undergraduate seminars on multivariate data analysis using R and agent-based modeling using Python.
