Vita

Hi, my name is Jessica Daikeler. I work at GESIS in the Survey Design and Methodology department as a Post Doc. This is where I am part of GESIS' new strategic direction on digital behavioral data. With digital behavioral data we mean data types like tweets, GPS data or text data in general. My main task is research on data quality of these digital data, as well as their linkage with survey data. I also develop services that make data quality of digital data accessible.

I graduated and did my PhD at the University of Mannheim. During my PhD, I was at the University of Michigan in An Arbor on a research stay. In my master thesis with Prof. Frauke Kreuter I worked on "Motivated Underreporting and Response Propensities". I wrote my dissertation on "The Application of Evidence-Based Methods in Survey Methodology" with Prof. Michael Bosnjak (RKI) and Prof. Florian Keusch (University of Mannheim).

At GESIS, I have already worked or am working in the Survey Operations and Statistics teams. So far, I have worked on the application of evidence-based methods in the Social Sciences, such as experiments, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, supervised the GESIS Survey Guidelines and developed the GESIS Survey Methods Evidence Map. In our team, I supervise our student assistants.
