Welcome to my page!

I’m Nicole Janz, a writer, academic, and coach (and mum of two!). I am originally from East Germany, and I now live in Cambridge, UK.

I’m currently on research leave to work on a human rights project at the Alfried Krupp Kolleg at the University of Greifswald.

Come to my next talk “Testing business impact on society with machine learning” on July 1, 5pm UK time/6pm German time.

Academic Focus

I’m an Assistant Professor in International Relations at the University of Nottingham. I did my PhD at the University of Cambridge, where I also worked as a post-doc. I focus on comparative human rights, international political economy, reproducible science, and quantitative methods. I also promote international scientific reproducibility, as a member of the Steering Committee of the UK Reproducitibility Network¬†and the Executive Committee of Project TIER, I also serve on the Advisory Board of the Qualitative Data Repository.


Coaching & Workshops

As a writer with over 20 years of experience in journalism and academia – and more recently as a creative writer – I help writers to be more productive and publish more. I run workshops, writing retreats, and offer one-on-one coaching to get you unstuck. You can read more here.
