Hi! I am Marvin Stecker.
I am a PhD student at the Computational Communication Science Lab at the University of Vienna. I am part of the AUTHLIB project on illiberal challenges to democracy, and previously worked in the OPTED project on infrastructures for political text analysis.
My research focuses on two broad areas: substantially I focus on social groups and their identities in the political space, focussing on their meaning, their contestation and influence on political behaviour. I am also interested in methodological questions, particularly around computational approaches such as natural language processing or simulation studies, and work on their development and validation.
