Frederic holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of St. Gallen and a M.A. in Comparative and International Studies from ETH Zurich with a focus on quantitative research methods and political economy.

In this capacity, he analysed, among others, the pledge conditionality of Annex I Parties under the Kyoto protocol and was responsible for the compilation of datasets on international environmental treaties. During his studies, he also spent time abroad in the Brasília office of the KfW Entwicklungsbank supporting investment projects on renewable energies and resource protection, and in the Brussels office of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft monitoring the 8th EU framework programme on research and innovation (Horizon 2020).
