Hi there!

I'm Marko, a social scientist based in Zurich, Switzerland.

The performative power of communication is utterly fascinating to me, and that's why my research interests mostly hover around theoretical and empirical aspects of public communication in the contexts of politics, science and culture.

More generally, I'm a big science fan: If you want to think about the world in an evidence-based manner, then science is the way to go!

I like to write a lot about a lot, mostly in English and German, and I'm also dabbling in podcasting.

I'm president of two non-profit organizations, the Swiss Skeptics - Association for Critical Thinking (, and ZIPAR - Zurich Institute of Public Affairs Research (
