I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Quality Analysis at the University of Technology Dresden (Germany) and at the Institute for Sociology at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Germany). I earned my doctoral degree in the field of educational sciences at University of Technology Dresden, my masters degree in industrial management with specialization in communication sciences at University of Applied Sciences Mittweida, and I'm graduated in the field of media technology at University of Applied Sciences Mittweida.

My research deals with online research and social network analysis. My work actually explores the impact of social interaction and patterns of social ties on academic careers and developmental stages of research institutions in macro and micro perspective. The focus of my research based on the multi-mode extraction and exploration of (large) relational data in interaction networks with the help of Social Network Analysis (SNA), Dynamic Network Analysis (DNA), Semantic Network Analysis (SSNA) as well as Visual Analytics (VA). Me and my colleagues introduced a framework for extracting complex data in Academia in 2013 (Stuetzer, Breiger, Koehler, 2013). The aim is to provide further developments and applications of relational methods in the field of academic research (see www.academicanalytics.eu).

Here you can find some selected works and publications in the field of Social Academic Analytics (SAA) and Social Learning Analytics (SLA). If you are interested in, please don't hesitate and contact me!
