We have released our new data portal GROWup. It presents data on ethnic group power relations, ethnic settlement patterns, and civil war collected jointly by the International Conflict Research group and our partners in Essex, Oslo, and Uppsala. The data are presented graphically for the wider public and provided in research-ready format for the academic community.

Luc is fascinated by the complexity that surrounds all aspects of life and by our attempts at taming it. He began his journey at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva and later joined the UBS AG (Ubilab), where he focused on information analysis and management issues, while also creating novel approaches that support intuitive and interactive ways of thinking. Subsequently, he co-founded Macrofocus, a start-up company that designs interactive visualization tools for knowledge workers that help them make well-informed and efficient decisions. Luc is currently lead architect at Macrofocus and researcher on complex adaptive systems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). He holds a master's degree in computer science and telecommunication.
