I am an economist working on topics around the distribution of income and wealth, how we tax these things, and how people's behavior responds to taxes. Since April 2020, I hold a research position at KOF Institute at ETH in Zurich. From fall 2017 until spring 2020 I worked as an economist for the Swiss Federation of Trade Unions SGB-USS. Since 2018, I represent the trade unions in the Swiss Competition Commission as an elected Member of the Commission.
