Prof. Dr. Jan Karem Höhne

I am junior professor at the Leibniz University Hannover in association with the German Centre for Higher Education and Science Research and research fellow at the Research and Expertise Centre for Survey Methodology at the University of Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. Before that I was senior postdoc in the ERC-funded POLITSOLID project at the Political Science Department at the University of Duisburg-Essen, postdoc at the Collaborative Research Center “Political Economy of Reforms” at the University of Mannheim, research fellow of the German Academic Exchange Service at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, and Fulbright fellow at the Department of Communication at Stanford University.

My research combines survey research and computational social science. I work on measuring political and social attitudes and investigate new, digital data sources and forms for empirical social research. For this purpose, I program JavaScript-based tools, such as the open-source SurveyVoice (SVoice) tool for recording respondents’ voice answers in web-based surveys, and apply Automatic Speech Recognition, Natural Language Processing, and Text-as-Data Methods.

I jointly founded the Mobile Apps and Sensors in Surveys workshop and co-edit the open-access journal methods data analyses. Since the start of my PhD at the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Göttingen (Germany) in 2014 I published more than 40 research articles. Most of them in internationally established journals, such as Computers in Human Behavior, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society (Series A), Public Opinion Quarterly, and Social Science Computer Review.

Many thanks for your interest in me and my research!
