Hi, I'm Stefan!

I've built this website back in 1999 to keep a unique e-mail address.

I'm a generalist with broad interests and somewhat of a policy wonk, and hence like both data and people. I've worked in various different fields, from banking (for more than ten years!) to quality development and urban research. I've also got a B.A. degree in Social Scienes and Geography, and soon (June 2020) will finish an M.A. degree in Sociology and Political Science.
Apart from that, I'm especially proud of being a founding member of the student-led NGO Offener Hörsaal, which supports refugee participation at the University of Basel. I've also been a beta tester for a (sadly abandoned) open source text editor, taught a class on current issues of human rights, been a tutor, and was a member of Amnesty Students Basel.
In my free time, I'm an avid hiker and traveller, having been to over 30 countries around the world, including countries and territories at the Horn of Africa and in Central Asia. More importantly, I've made real friends while travelling. When at home, I enjoy having interesting discussions in good company, preferably with a glass of wine or port.
