While I've been based in Singapore for many years now, I am originally from New Zealand (see picture to the right!), and hold a PhD in Economics from Stanford University.

I am currently co-editor of the International Journal of Industrial Organization, a Singapore Competition Appeal Board Member, a member of the EMA's Licensing, Tariffs & Competition Committee, and a member of NUS Angel Ventures. 

Together with my co-author Andrei Hagiu, we run a series, the PlatformChronicles on Substack, on the ins and outs of platform businesses. Do subscribe.
