Andreas is the endowed Sky Research Professor at Macromedia University and a research fellow at Columbia Journalism School’s Tow Center for Digital Journalism in New York City. He holds a doctorate in economics from the University of Karlsruhe and has held research positions at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and LMU Munich. He also spent two years as a visiting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. In his research, Andreas does not limit himself to a particular domain or method. Instead, he looks across many domains and uses different methods to address important problems. For example, he has studied topics such as forecasting, decision-making, leadership, advertising, technology assessment, automated journalism and public opinion. Since 2007, Andreas has lead the PollyVote.com project for evidence-based election forecasting, which has correctly predicted every U.S. presidential election since 2004.
