Graduate Student at Technical University of Berlin, Germany

Fields of Study
Videography, Conversation Analysis, Political Communication

My research focuses on the performance of populist style within political speeches. At its center, I analyze specific forms of communication used by political speakers in their relation to audiences and context of election events. I apply an initially micro-sociological perspective on qualitative video data through conversation analysis and videography, searching for the conditions of specific populist style.
