Prof. Dr. Sonja Utz

Leiterin der Nachwuchsgruppe Soziale Medien

Sonja Utz leitet seit April 2013 die Nachwuchsgruppe Soziale Medien am IWM und ist seit April 2014 Professorin für Kommunikation mittels sozialer Medien an der Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen. Mit ihrem Team untersucht sie wie die Pflege und Ausbreitung sozialer Netzwerke via sozialer Medien zu informationaler und emotionaler Unterstützung führen kann, u.a. im ERC-Projekt ReDefTie ("Redefining tie strength: How social media (can) help us to get non-redundant information and emotional support"). Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt auf dem Wissensaustausch in professionellen Settings und den zugrundeliegenden motivationalen und kognitiven Prozessen (z. B. strategischer Wissensaustausch, ambient awareness). Neben der Grundlagenforschung kooperiert Sonja Utz auch mit Unternehmen, z. B. im Eurostars-Projekt Dr. Tide, das die Rolle von (self-service) Visualisierungen in Business Intelligence Tools untersucht. Sonja Utz ist seit September 2013 Beisitzerin der Fachgruppe Medienpsychologie der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Psychologie.

Sonja Utz hat an der Katholischen Universität Eichstätt Psychologie studiert und dort 1999 über soziale Identifikation mit virtuellen Gemeinschaften promoviert. Als PostDoc war sie, finanziert über ein DFG-Stipendium, an der VU University Amsterdam, Abteilung Sozialpsychologie. Nach 2,5 Jahren an der TU Chemnitz wechselte sie im April 2004 wieder an die VU University Amsterdam, diesmal an die Abteilung Kommunikationswissenschaft. Von 2011 bis 2013 war sie zudem Associate Professor für soziale Medien und Reputationsmanagement an der NHL Leeuwarden.
