Since February 2015 I am assistant professor at the Department of Sociology and the ICS at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. I am very much looking forward to both teaching sociology in Groningen and starting new research projects with my old friends from the ICS.

On the other hand, I will mis my friends and colleagues from ETH very much. We had a great time and we conducted wonderful research. Thanks to Thomas Chadefaux, Olivia Wooley, Heinrich Nax, Thomas Grund, Lukas Bischofberger, Stefano Balietti, Max Schich, Karsten Donnay, Tobias Kuhn, Richard Mann, Izabela Moise, Evangelos Pournaras, Stefano Bennati, Stefano Duca, Matthias Leiss, Christian Schulz, Dario Biasini, Amin Mazloumian, and Dieter Huber. I also want to thank people from other departments at ETH, in particular Andreas Diekmann, Stefan Wehrli, Ryan Murphy, Kurt Ackermann, Silvana Jud, Robert ten Brincke, and Claudia Jenny.

Finally, I want to thank Dirk Helbing for his support during the past years. He gave me the opportunity to conduct research projects that were very extremely risky, expensive, and time consuming. I am very grateful for this.
