Welcome!

My name is Anna Sophie Kümpel and I am a researcher in the field of communication. Currently, I am working as an Assistant Professor („Juniorprofessorin“) at the Institute of Media and Communication at TU Dresden, Germany.

My research focuses on a broad spectrum of media uses and effects. Most of my recent projects deal with the use, dissemination, and perception of news and political information in algorithmically curated online environments, especially social media. Furthermore, I am interested in media entertainment research, particularly in the realm of digital games and second screening. I consider myself to be an advocate for mixed methods research and routinely combine quantitative and qualitative designs to address my research questions.
