The possibility to change something has always driven me. After a year at the ETH, I was so interested in politics, that I decided to move to the University of Zurich and study political science in the main subject. I specialize in Swiss politics and political data journalism. Since 2016 I am an assistant at the chair of methods and write my PhD thesis about strategic voting.
Big data is the future – the statistics program R helps to deal with data of any size. The application helps to calculate models, graphics, create and clean data, and a lot more. During my study in political science we learned it and with my computer science knowledge I am even able to programm new packages which makes analysing for me and many other people easier.
