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

I am a PhD Candidate and Research Associate of Computational Social Science & Big Data at Technical University of Munich with J├╝rgen Pfeffer. My background is in Italian, French and German Studies and Media Law, I spent most of my study time at the University of Munich (LMU), at the University of Heidelberg, at the University of Rome and in Florence. I was born in Berlin. In my research I would like to understand how large-scale social systems work and how they change. I consider language as a complex system, investigating its role empirically and experimentally using computational methods and social network analysis. I am particular interested in methodological and theoretical challenges arising from these systems. One of the objective is to advance the interdisciplinary challenges of Linguistics, Social Science and Computer Science.
