I am a PhD student at the Center for Law & Economics at ETH Zurich. In my research, I study the Swiss court system using quantitative methods. Specifically, I am interested in the influence of the multilingual nature of the Swiss legal system on the behavior of judges at the Swiss Federal Administrative Court. My research interests also include behavioral and experimental law & economics, and public and constitutional law. I have published journal articles and contributions to books on Swiss public law issues such as constitutional revision and the supervision of intelligence services.
Prior to joining ETH, I was a junior associate in the Banking & Finance practice group of Lenz & Staehelin, a major corporate law firm in Zurich. Previously, I was a research assistant at the KOF Swiss Economic Institute, ETH Zurich, and to Prof. Bernhard Ehrenzeller, Chair for Public Law, at the University of St. Gallen. I graduated with an M.A. in Law, a B.A. in Law, and a B.A. in International Affairs from the University of St. Gallen and completed exchange terms at the University of Geneva and at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. With the support of the Fondation Zdenek et Michaela Bakala, I will undertake a stay abroad as a visiting researcher at the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science, which unites leading experts in quantitative methodology and judicial behavior.
