I am Professor of Public Law at the University of Basel. My research interests include digital democracy, e-voting (in political referendums and elections), fully automated administrative procedures as well as fully automated taxation procedures. Before coming to Basel I was Assistant Professor of Public Law at the University of Zurich.
