Frieder is a doctoral candidate at the Graduate School of Economics and Social Sciences. Since June 2023, he works on the IAB-Smart project, initially exploring the possibilities of using smartphones for data collection in social science and labour market research. Currently, he focuses on data donation methods and their methodological incorporation into social science research.
Frieder holds a European Master's in Labour Studies and Social Policy from the University of Bremen and the University of Milan. In his thesis, he showed how members of parliament shared a common understanding of long-term care based on their gender, age, or migration background. There, he exploited a novel method in text-as-data analysis to study 40 years of Bundestag speeches. During his studies, he worked as a research assistant at the Research Center on Inequality and Social Policy (SOCIUM) in the ERC project “The Legacy of Colonialism” and as a tutor for policial science research at the University of Tübingen. Frieder is interested in combining computational methods with social science research, particularly in exploring diverse data types and their acquisition.
