Thrilled to announce the publication of my first PhD paper in
@ECSR_Soc. I analyse the use of gender-inclusive language in German media over the past 20 years using the DeReKo @IDS_Mannheim.

I am happy to announce that I am joining @unil and @FORSresearch as a Researcher!

Back in Switzerland 🇨🇭 where I will continue to work on electoral behaviour and support the development of @NES_Consortium and @MEDem_ERI.

💡The MEDem Steering Committee came together in Vienna to discuss data management, the #MEDem services & the allocation of crucial tasks needed to secure MEDem’s place on the #ESFRIroadmap. A heartfelt thank you to all for their invaluable contributions.🔬
