Hello! My name is Aleksandra Urman. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Communication and Media Studies, University of Bern, Switzerland. In my doctoral dissertation, I examined polarisation on social media across different national contexts. My main research interests include diverse forms of online political communication and applications of computational methods in social sciences.

Before joining ICMB, I received a Master’s degree in Political Science from Central European University. At CEU I focused on research methods and political communication.

I also hold a BA degree in Asian Studies from Higher School of Economics, Moscow. Besides, I was an exchange student at Kookmin University in Seoul and a visiting student at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
