Born in 1959, I am married and father of three now adult children and grandfather of 3 lovely grand-kids. I play saxophone and sing in a jazz band and like to mountaineer.

Our department supports several HIV treatment projects in Sub-Saharan Africa and we run consultations in the Heroin and Methadone Clinics of Bern.
I work in the Swiss Expert Committee for Travel Medicine; the CDC/NIH/IDSA OI Management Guidelines Panel; the Swiss federal working Group for clinical and therapeutic aspects of HIV and STDs; the OI section of the EACS guidelines and I am member of the executive board of the Swiss Society for Infectious Diseases.
