I have recently received InnoSuisse funding for a joint project with colleagues at the Digital Democracy Lab, at ETH Zurich and sotomo that combines natural language processing and machine learning to support a civil society initiative led by Alliance F to counter online hate speech (StopHateSpech). Together with a colleague in Germany, I also have a current project on automated detection of media bias in news media articles that combines state-of-the-art deep learning approaches from computer science with longstanding insights from the social sciences (WIN).

Further research projects that I have contributed to in the past have been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF),  the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom (DFID) and a Minerva research grant. Please refer to Past Projects for details.
