Education & Work
I just graduated with distinction from the MSc in Applied Social Science at the London School of Economics. Before that, I completed a Bachelor in Social Science with a focus on computational social science and econometrics in Switzerland.
During my undergrad, I was a statistical research assistant, teaching a class about computational data analysis and assisting research projects. In between my studies, I did an internship in New York City, before working as a campaign manager at a newly-founded and quickly expanding campaigning organisation in Switzerland.
After graduating this fall, I returned to this organisation as a data science consultant, helping them optimise their database and providing them with a better understanding of their data.

Female Tech Leaders Hackathon 2020: This spring my team won the Female Tech Leaders Hackathon with a project titled "The Developing Sentiment Towards Face Mask". We collected 125k+ Reddit comments via the Pushshift API. Using VADER, a lexicon based approach optimised for social media text, we analysed the sentiment around wearing face masks because of COVID-19.
New York City PRNews’ Platinum Awards 2018: While I was working in New York, the Swedish company Spotify went public on the New York Stock Exchange. By mistake, the Swiss flag was hoisted. My colleague and I quickly acted and staged a Twitter Battle with our Swedish colleagues, which went viral and provoked significant media coverage. For this, we won a PR award for the best "24-Hour Campaign".
I'm fluent in English, German, and Swiss German. I understand French very well, but I cannot speak it fluently.
I like to surprise my friends with creative gifts (which give me an excuse to try something new). My favourites have been a customised 3D-printed cookie cutter, a customised paint by numbers set, a self-designed and hand-bound book made from chat conversations, and an "instant-celebration" kit for my former team.
I also like: reading, listening to audiobooks or podcasts, travelling, arranging cheese platters, and playing dungeons & dragons.
