Jürgen Lerner

I'm researcher at the Department of Computer and Information Science of the University of Konstanz, where from 2017 to 2025 I'm leading a project on statistical analysis of social networks, funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG 321869138).  My research interests include social network analysis, computational social science, and statistical network modeling. I'm thrilled by applications of network analysis in various disciplines of the social sciences and beyond. One network analysis method - relational (hyper-)event models - turned out to be particularly relevant with applications in diverse research areas, including organization science, public health, bibliometrics, international relations, political science / history, sociology, criminology, biology / collective behavior, communication, social psychology, and open peer-production. During three semesters from 2022 - 2023 I was interim professor for Computational Social Sciences and Humanities at the RWTH Aachen. From 2016 - 2019 I was PostDoc with Prof. Dr. Alessandro Lomi, Faculty of Economic Science, Universita della Svizzera italiana, Lugano.
