Since April 2023, Nora Jansen is a post-doc researcher at the Chair of Information Systems and Information Management at Goethe University. Nora’s research interest lies in the analysis of mis- and disinformation. During her time at Cardiff University (July 2020 to March 2023), Nora worked very practically oriented and gathered valuable experiences in the analysis of mis- and disinformation. In total, Nora wrote over 50 confidential policy reports for governmental agencies. This also included the consulting of governments, such as the German Government in terms of disinformation campaigns during the German Election 2021.
For over a decade, Nora has also concentrated on evidence-based policing and has already been working together with South Wales Police, the German Federal Criminal Police Office, the Hessian University for Public Management and Security (formerly known as the Hessian Police Academy), and the Police Headquarters Südhessen.
In her dissertation, Nora focused on the diffusion of information and dealt with the real-time detection of buzzes (e.g., online firestorms and lovestorms), in particular. During her time as a PhD student, Nora spent a research year at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, and together with her Australian colleagues, she investigated reaction strategies to online firestorms.
Nora did her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in 'Management of Information Systems' at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. During her Master’s degree, she studied one year abroad at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
