Lev-Connect / Athletics & Community
My name is Robert Roessler, and I am a PhD candidate in the Harvard German Department, where I use quantitative methods to analyze historical discourses inscribed in literary texts. In addition to my appointment at the German Department, I am also affiliated with the Computer Science Department, where I am TFing various courses at the intersection of humanities and computer science. Originally from Germany, I received a BA and MA degree in History and Literature from the University of Vienna before coming to Harvard in 2015. During my years in Vienna, I was working as a researcher at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for the History and Theory of Biography. Besides my academic interests, I am enthusiastic about sports of any kind. I am captain of the Harvard Men’s Club Volleyball team, as well as a passionate climber, soccer player and rower. You can find me and my partner Sriya Coomer, also a tutor here in Lev, on the 10th floor of G-Tower (G-107).
