About me

I am a PhD candidate at the Chair of Public Economics at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. My research is in the field ob political economy where I focus on public choice, political representation and incentives and constraints shaping individual and thus social choice.

I am also currently working at the Institute for Swiss Economic Policy (IWP) in Lucerne, Switzerland. There I help to run the online platform Parlameter, which measures Swiss politics in a way that is publicly accessible to everyone and thus makes it more transparent.
