I am a Deputy Head of the Growth and Competition Policy Unit at Switzerland's State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, responsible inter alia for Swiss competition policy as well as security of supply chains. Previously, I was the Director for Data Forensics and a Member of the Executive Board at the St.Gallen Endowment for Prosperity through Trade, the home of the Global Trade Alert. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics and Finance (with honours) from the University of St.Gallen and am also a Research Fellowship at the Swiss Institute for International Economics and Applied Economic Research. I have completed over a dozen projects for governments, corporate actors, and international organisations in trade policy questions.
