About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Law at VU Amsterdam where I co-direct the 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 Superior Audiovisual Council’s scientific board, also, a blockchain expert appointed to the World Economic Forum and the World Bank.

In 2018, I received 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 manuscript (Bruylant) on the subject of “predatory innovation in antitrust law” and articles at Harvard University, Stanford, MIT, Oxford, NYU, Berkeley, and Georgetown, among others. My second book, “Blockchain + Antitrust”, was published in September 2021 (Edward Elgar).

In recent years, I have focused most of my research on blockchain antitrustcomputational antitrust, and complexity theory. I have written the world’s most downloaded antitrust articles on SSRN in 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”).
