From 2000 onwards, he held various positions at the University of Bamberg, among them the research centre for “New Communications Media”, at the Chair in Sociology II (Prof. Dr. R.

After completing his doctorate on the institutionalisation of locally related online services, he was a German Academic Exchange scholar at the Donau-University Krems, and guest scholar at the Johannes-Kepler-University Linz (Prof. Dr. B.

From 2005 to 2007, he worked on a postdoc project supported by the German Research Foundation on “Practices in online–based networking” at the research centre for “New Communications Media” in Bamberg. Since November 2007 he has been working as a senior researcher for digital media and political communication at the Hans-Bredow-Institut. His research focus is on developments of “Web 2.0”, or respectively ”social software”, where he is particularly interested in current changes in online based public spheres and social networks, as well as their effects on politics, economy and civil society. In addition, he analyses forms, functions and consequences of online and game-based social spaces as a member of the working group ”Digital Games and Online Worlds” at the Hans-Bredow-Institut.
