PhD Researcher, University of Zurich

I am PhD researcher at the University of Zurich and specialise in the field of normative political theory.

My doctoral research project focuses on popular vote processes (initiative and referendums) and proposes a reassessment of these precedures' democratic credentials in democratic systems.

Besides, as a member of the association of researchers in democracy studies DemocracyNet (, I regularly co-organize transfer events for the broader public.
