My research revolves around the development of machine learning and data mining algorithms to study human behavior within social systems in general, and political systems in particular. I have drawn from the literature on discrete choice models and latent factor models to develop interpretable models of collaborative and competitive processes, such as peer-production, sports, voting, and law-making. I built Predikon and Kickoff.ai.
I was the President of Swiss Youth for Climate. Climate change is the challenge of our generation. I believe that the power of machine learning can enhance mitigation of climate change and help us adapt to it. To understand people's perception of their carbon footprint, I built Climpact.
