After my political science and history master’s degree from the University of Lausanne, I worked as a teaching and research assistant at the universities of Bern (2008-2009) and Lausanne (2010-2014). During that time, I completed my PhD thesis on Swiss employers’ associations and their influence over social policy developments. It was pubished in 2016 under the title Mainmise sur l’État social. Mobilisation patronale et caisses de compensation en Suisse (1908-1960). In 2015, I was a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow, supported by a fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation. My research project dealt with employers transnational connections in the first half of the twentieth century: An International for the employers? The International Organization of Industrial Employers from the 1920s to the 1950s. From 2015 to 2019, I was a junior lecturer (Oberassistent) at the University of Zurich. I was responsible for the coordination of the graduate program in economic history « Wirtschaftsgeschichte und Ökonomie ». From February to April 2018, I was a Research Affiliate at Yale University, supported by a mobility grant of the Zurich Graduate Campus. From February 2019 to August 2020, I will be a Visiting Research Scholar at the Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies, the New School for Social Research, New York City. My current project, supported by another fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation, investigates the history of global capitalism, ‘Businessmen of the World, Unite!’ The International Chamber of Commerce and the Rise of Global Capitalism in the Twentieth Century. In August 2020, I will join the University of Lausanne as a permanent lecturer (Maître d’Enseignement et de Recherche) in international history.
