Marco Martini is a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of International Relations and International Political Economy. He received his Ph.D. from ETH Zurich in February 2018. His research interests lie at the intersection of international political economy, bargaining, and political methodology. His research investigates how government’s industry-specific policy preferences affect bargaining in international trade relations. In his dissertation, Marco looks at trade disputes. In other projects, he studies for example the formation of preferential trade agreements. To compile previously unavailable data on trade barriers, dispute events, or bargaining outcomes, he draws on a variety of methods, including automated text analysis, mathematical simulations, and statistical modelling. Marco has won the ETH Medal for outstanding dissertations at ETH Zurich as well as the SNIS Award 2018 for the best PhD thesis submitted at a Swiss University on a subject related to International Studies. Prior to joining UZH, Marco was a fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance (NCGG) at Princeton University.
