Sebastian joined Das Progressive Zentrum in January 2023 as an intern in the strategic communications team. He studied Media and Communication in Rotterdam and London and recently graduated with an MSc in Political Communication from the University of Amsterdam. His academic interests particularly lie in the interaction of media, politics, and the public. In his master’s thesis, he investigated how journalists made use of emotions and facts within the science news coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic. During his bachelor studies, he also completed an internship in the research project “Democratic Resilience in Times of Online Propaganda, Fake News, Fear, and Hate Speech” in its initial phase at the University of Münster.
