Who we are

We are an interdisciplinary collaboration network of young researchers from various fields. Our backgrounds include computer science, data science, computational linguistics, sociology, and political science. By bringing together knowledge from these disciplines, we strive to improve the state of the art within individual disciplines as well as facilitate interdisciplinary research. The network was founded by Felix Hamborg in 2017.

We are always glad to welcome new partners and students! Whether that is for a student project or thesis, a research collaboration, scientific exchange, or anything else, simply get in contact with Felix Hamborg. We’re also hiring: Ph.D. position (50-100%) and research assistant (backend, Python).
