Hi, my name is Wienke. Never heard before? Wienke Strathern. Neither? Let’s listen how to pronounce it.

I have a Doctorate in Communication and Computational Social Science, please find my thesis here. I did a Master of Arts in Language and Literature (Italian, German, French) and Law at the University of Munich (LMU), at the University of Heidelberg, at the University of Rome and in Florence. I was born in Berlin.

My research is guided by theories and methods for the empirical analysis of text data in order to gain insights into the structures and dynamics of social behavior. I am mainly interested in digital communication platforms.

Currently, I am looking at

  • how people form discussions online,
  • how people enhance positive online environments,
  • how these processes can be promoted.
