My recent paper on protest and labor strike prediction was named “open-access article of the week” by The Syllabus and has been cited in a research report of the European Parliament on social media risks and a policy paper on worker surveillance by the labor rights organization Coworker.org.

My research on unemployed profiling has been cited by human rights NGOs such as Human Rights Watch and in governmental public policy papers in Europe such as a background paper on algorithmic discrimination by the Office of Technology Assessment at the German federal parliament, a report by AI4people (global multi-stakeholder forum started at the European Parliament), a report on AI uses in governments for the Swiss canton Zurich, and the technology monitoring report of the Austrian parliament. A report based on this work was published in the European Parlimentary Technology Assesment database.

This research on unemployed profiling was also cited by ComputerWeekly, Mirage News, IndustryEurope, AK Oberösterreich/A&W Blog (Austrian chamber of labour), ORF (Austrian national public service broadcaster), Ö1 (Austrian public radio), Der Standard (Austrian newspaper), and Futurezone (Austrian tech newspaper).

I have published self-authored articles in German on the social implications of efforts to predicit labor organizing based on social media data (Arbeitskämpfe auf Social Media: Zwischen Streikorganisation und Streikvorhersage, Netzpolitik.org) and on algorithmic discrimination (Wenn der Algorithmus zum Unterdrücker wird, Progress - das Magazin der österreichischen Hochschülerinnenschaft). I was interviewed by the Austrian newspaper Die Presse for my invovlement in a campaign against harassment at the European Forum Alpbach.
