Hello! My name is Aleksandra Urman. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Communication and Media Studies, University of Bern, and Social Computing Group, University of Zurich, 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 science.
I also hold a Master’s degree in Political Science from Central European University. At CEU I focused on research methods and political communication.
Prior to that, I received 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.
