PhD student in "Locative News" (Local-N)
Per Ole Uphaus (*23 February 1995 in Bremen) studied Media Management (B.A.) at the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences from 2014 to 2017 with a focus on media science, media economics and media practice. In his bachelor’s thesis he dealt with the usage behavior of location-based services in tourism. In 2018, he joined the project ‘Location-Based Services in Regional Media Communication’ (a third-party financed project under ERDF funding) at the Institute for Media Management at the Ostfalia – initially as a student assistant, and since the end of 2019 as a research assistant. At the same time, he studied communication management (M.A.) from 2018 to 2020, also at the Ostfalia, with a focus on communication science, market and opinion research, personnel leadership and management, entrepreneurship. He completed his master’s thesis entitled “Location-Based Services in Regional Media Communication: An investigation of strategic orientations for the successful integration of locative technologies in regional media” as a cumulative, English-language thesis, in which he combined several scientific publications on the topic. In the winter semester of 2020/2021, he lectured at the Ostfalia in the fields of statistics and journalism.
During his research so far, he was able to acquire methodological expertise in quantitative and qualitative research and supervised and reviewed various theses. He has authored several international publications – among them a paper for the European Media Management Association 2020 that was nominated for the Best Paper Award. In the context of various conferences and not least through a current extensive Delphi study, including detailed interviews with international LBS experts from both science and practice, he is well connected in the relevant research field.
Since March 2021, Uphaus is working on his PhD project ‘LocativeNews (Local-N): location-based hyperlocal scenarios for successful social (media) communication’ as a PhD student at Leibniz Science Campus.
