I am a researcher at the University of Stuttgart. Coming from a background in Sociology, I write my dissertation at the Department of Digital Humanities.

In my dissertation project, I analyze data on Marvels and DCs superhero media. Using social network analysis, my main interest is the development of network analytical methods for the evolution of the highly dynamic character networks in narratives by the two publishers.

If you're interested, check out my ongoing projects under Research. I also run a little blog under Blog where I write about little snippets from my research or just about what interests me.

For questions, suggestions or exchange, please contact me on any of my social media or shoot me an email under
