Academic
I currently work at the Faculty of Sociology at the University of Bielefeld.
Here you can find the International Center for Research on Culture and Technology (Internationales Zentrum für Kultur und Technikforschung, IZKT) at the Universität Stuttgart.
The Paul F. Lazarsfeld Center for the Social Sciences is located at Columbia University, New York.
For my work at the IZKT and at Columbia, I was awarded a Feodor Lynen research fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
Before going to Columbia, I worked at the Section for Sociology and Social Research at the Universität Stuttgart, Germany.
At the IZKT, I organized the conference Gegenwärtige Zukünfte about the representation of technologies and their social consequences in Science Fiction. A second conference 'Kultur und Kommunikationstechnologien in sozialen Netzwerken' on culture and communication technologies in social networks (organized with Christian Stegbauer) is scheduled for May 2009.
The webpage of the international symposium Relational Sociology: Transatlantic Impulses for the Social Sciences (organized with Sophie Muetzel at the Humboldt University in Berlin) is still online. I am a member of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Soziologie and of the International Network of Social Network Analysis.

Short texts, presentations
Here's the podcast of a presentation on ethnic identity and networks of Italian migrants I held at the University of Trier in January 2009 (in German).
And a short text on street gangs for the online magazine "13 Seiten" (again in German)

Die Grünen
From 2001 to 2007, I was an active member of Bündnis90 / Die Grünen, Kreisverband Stuttgart. On their Website you'll also find the old Rundbriefe, the party newsletter I was editing from 2001 to 2003 and from 2005 to 2007.
