I research, teach and advise on law and technology. 


I am currently a tenured Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich. Before that, I worked at the University of Oxford and the London School of Economics. 


My research focuses on the digital economy, in particular (big) data and digital platforms (I am an editor of the Cambridge Handbook on the Law of the Sharing Economy) and computational intelligence. I also am the author of 'Blockchain Regulation and Governance in Europe' (Cambridge University Press 2018). I have a particular interest in data (protection) law, which I continue to explore from a number of different perspectives.

I am moreover a member of a number of expert committees on related matters such as the European Union's Blockchain Observatory and Forum, as well as other groups engaging with blockchain, AI, and technological change.
