I am an Associate Professor of Law at VU Amsterdam (Amsterdam Law & Technology Institute), and a Faculty Affiliate at Stanford University’s CodeX Center where I have created the “Computational Antitrust” project that brings together over 65 antitrust agencies. 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 Regulatory Authority for Audiovisual and Digital Communication’s scientific board, also, a blockchain expert appointed to the World Economic Forum and the World Bank.

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 “predatory innovation in antitrust law” and articles at Harvard University, Stanford, MIT, Oxford, NYU, Berkeley, and Georgetown, among others. I am the Network Law Review’s (formerly Concurrentialiste) creator.

These last couple of years, I have been focusing most of my research on blockchain antitrust, computational antitrust, and complexity science. I have written the world’s most downloaded antitrust articles of 2018 (“The Blockchain Antitrust Paradox”), 2019 (“Collusion by Blockchain and Smart Contracts”), 2020 (“Blockchain Code as Antitrust”), 2021 (“Computational Antitrust: An Introduction and Research Agenda”), and 2022 (“Complexity-Minded Antitrust”). My latest book, “Blockchain + Antitrust”, was published in September 2021.
