2023 - Present
I was awarded a Swiss National Science Foundation Post-Doc Mobility grant to work with the Centre for eResearch at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, on gamification and crowdsourcing in landscape perception data generation. I am developing, testing and analysing a location-based game (Arcane Shift) to gauge the potential of gamifying spatial crowdsourcing tasks.

As a PhD Candidate in the Geocomputation Group at the University of Zurich my main focus was crowdsourcing and citizen science in landscape perception and preference research using spatial as well as computational linguistic approaches.

I worked as a research assistant in the Geocomputation Unit of the University of Zurich. Tasks involved administrative work, aid in research and writing papers.
