A picture of me

I am Hendrik and currently a PhD-student at the Institute for Analytical Sociology (IAS) at Linköping University (LiU) in Sweden. Welcome to my personal website, where I keep you updated on all matters personal and occupational.

A sociologist and historian by training, I also know my ways around political theory and political economy. I work a lot with Machine Learning-based analysis and I am an experienced Open Source software developer. I like to bridge the gap between social scientific research and modern computer science. If you would like to connect, the best places are Twitter and Mastodon!
