Welcome

My most recent publication:
Computational Antitrust: An Introduction and Research Agenda

****

I am an Associate Professor of Law at VU Amsterdam, and a Faculty Affiliate at Stanford University’s CodeX Center where I have created the “Computational Antitrust” project that brings together over 55 antitrust agencies (see our website). I also hold research and teaching positions at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and Sciences Po Paris, I am a Harvard University’s Berkman Center alumnus, a member of the French Superior Audiovisual Council’s scientific board, and an expert appointed to the World Economic Forum.

In 2018, I was granted the “Academic Excellence” Global Competition Review Award, which recognizes “an academic competition specialist who has made an outstanding contribution to competition policy.” I have published a first book (Bruylant ed.) on the subject of “predatory innovation in antitrust law” and articles at Harvard University, Stanford, MIT, Oxford, NYU, Berkeley, and Georgetown, among others (see here). I am the Concurrentialiste Review’s creator.

These last couple of years, I have been focusing most of my research on blockchain antitrust (see here). I have written the world’s most downloaded antitrust articles of 2018 (“The Blockchain Antitrust Paradox”), 2019 (“Collusion by Blockchain and Smart Contracts”), and 2020 (“Blockchain Code as Antitrust”). Last but not least, I am passionate about nineties rock music, free jazz, Seinfeld, and B movies.
