As a sociologist and urban geographer I do research on the social embeddedness of people in their urban and digital surroundings. These two contexts become ever more intertwined. Therefore, I believe, it is essential to study social phenomena both in urban space as in cyber space. To do this, I prefer multiple research methods (mixed methods). It is my goal to accurately analyze the social problems of today and contribute to a people-oriented vision for the future. In this way, I also like to bring scientific research and societal practice closer together.
