I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of St. Gallen’s SEPS-HSG. My primary research interests lie at the intersection of data science, quantitative political economics, and online media economics.

I am PI for the SNSF Grants on Consequences of Personalized Information Provision Online: Segregation, Polarization, and Radicalization (2022-2026) and on Ideological Ad Targeting in Consumer Markets and the Political Market Place (2023-2027).

Before joining the University of St. Gallen, I was a Visiting Researcher at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.
