My research revolves around the development of machine learning and data mining techniques to study social systems. 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 believe that bringing an agnostic point of view to social sciences can help better understand human behaviour through the development of new machine learning algorithms. I built Predikon and Kickoff.ai.
For the past two years, 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. I built Climpact.
