Lisa Wunsch

I am a research fellow in Prof. Mark Lutter's team with a strong interest in quantitative data and methods. In particular, this includes the use of longitudinal data, experimental methods and computational social science to explore (academic) labor market dynamics as well as social and gender inequalities. 
I graduated with a B.A. in Sociology (with distinction) and am currently a Master's student, intending to start my PhD next year. In my Bachelor's thesis, I developed an empirical research project using a combination of automated quantitative text analysis and survival analysis, which I presented at the 16th INAS conference and which is currently being prepared for submission.
