Hannah Bucher is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Mannheim. Since May 2023, she has been working on the EUROSTAT SSI (smart Survey Integration) project, which aims to investigate how app-based data collection could be integrated into official statistics. In this project, her tasks involve successfully recruiting respondents to participate in smart surveys.
She graduated from the University of Mannheim, and her dissertation focuses on the differences between probabilistic and non-probabilistic sampling methods, as well as respondent recruitment for smartphone surveys. In the fall of 2022, she completed a research fellowship at the University of Michigan, where she worked on a project involving text message surveys. From 2017 to 2023, she served as a research associate at GESIS, where she was in charge of the German Longitudinal Election Study (GLES). As a survey methodologist, she was responsible for data collection for the GLES Panel. Additionally, she initiated the GLES Open Science Challenge to promote reproducible research practices in electoral research.
Hannah Bucher earned her master's degree in statistical methods (M.Sc) from the University of Eichstätt Ingolstadt.
