Elena Uhrig

Elena is studying sociology and business administration at the University of Mannheim. Her previous orientation towards quant research can easily be seen from a high affinity towards statistics and a good command of Stata. Now, she shows all the more interest in qual analysis methods, in order to gain as extensive knowledge as possible about all aspects of market research. In addition, she specialised in marketing and did research on values and the image of women in advertising. Moreover, she is particularly interested in shopper research and consumption patterns.

Sophie is currently completing her bachelor in media- and communications management in Heidelberg. She loves the creative work in different sectors of media. Besides publishing journalistic articles, she is also designing websites and is well versed in Adobe Creative Cloud.
