Zsófia Rakovics

Zsófia Rakovics, statistician and sociologist. During her university studies she conducted a research on precarity, globalization and its effect on society and work. She also took part in other sociological investigations (e.g. about gender inequality), and studied the remembrance of the Holocaust, by qualitatively analyzing testimonies of survivors. Her methodological interest includes both qualitative and quantitative methods. Since the completion of her master studies she has been working as a data scientist at an international company, which uses computer vision and machine learning technologies to capture emotional reactions. Recently, her interest turned back to memory research, and towards studying populism and the political public discourse with natural language processing methods, through which she is linked to the research group.
