Alexa Lenz is research fellow at the chair of Public Administration and Organization Theory. She is working within the joint research project „Emergence and social effects of hybrid organizations in local crisis management (HybOrg)“, which examines how state institutions engage in crisis management activities at the local level as well as how such efforts can help generate valuable social capital. The project aims to create a systematic record of administrative action within the realm of crisis management, analyze its effects on social cohesion, and formulate a set of concrete recommendations for relevant stakeholders.
Alexa completed her bachelor’s program in Political Science and Media Studies at the University of Regensburg and the Universidad Austral de Chile. She holds a master’s degree in Political Science from the LMU Munich and a master’s degree in Current Democracies: Nationalism, Federalism and Multiculturalism from the UPF Barcelona. During that time she focused on the study of political behavior and political sociology with emphasis on migration studies. Currently, she is studying the societal effects of administrative behavior and the development of social capital.
