Applied or basic

I have been involved in research for almost 20 years. I carry out three types of research:

Predictions and surveys on current issues

With my prediction market, I create predictions for referendums and elections as part of predilect. And with Maxime Walder I conduct surveys in our Swiss Political Survey Garage (SPS Garage), a workshop for political science surveys.

Commissioned research

In my research areas, I examine my clients‘ research questions according to the highest scientific standards. For the State Chancellery of St.Gallen, for example, I investigated the effect of the design of electoral lists on voting behavior.

Basic research

I have invested most of my energy in basic research projects. My research projects have been funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the German Research Foundation, the Spanish Ministry of Competition and Innovation and the University of Zurich.
