I am a Associate Professor of Political Science at Franklin University Switzerland and external lecturer at University of Zurich. My main fields of substantive interest are political behavior, ethnicity, nationalism, and migration. I also have a special interest with prediction markets, which I use to forecast a large variety of political events.

With colleagues, I run several projects: Predilect runs prediction markets to forecast election outcomes in various countries with those for Switzerland published on the blog 50plus1; PREMIA further develops prediction market methods and applies it to a large variety of topics including geopolitics; FRISKOP predicts the likelihood of geopolitical events and surveys experts about their potential economic impacts; SPS Garage is a workshop for political science surveys facilitating experimental survey research with a large sample of volunteers from the Swiss population.
