My research is mapped around various topics in law and economics, including the analysis of the effect of private sanctions, measuring cartel detection and deterrence, the anti-competitive effects of mergers, and the ex post evaluation of the impact of competition enforcement including the analysis of the deterrent effect of law enforcement. I am currently working on more general questions of law and economics, such as the reputational effects of crime. Methodologically I am currently exploring how machine learning can contribute to studying social sciences, and especially competition law and economics.
Besides my academic background, I have several years and policy analysis experience working for the Hungarian Competition Authority and for the OECD. I am a member of the Competition and Markets Authority's Academic Board, and I have provided advice and delivered various reports for the European Commission, the OECD, UNCTAD, and the World Bank on issues related to economic impact evaluation and the estimation of the consumer benefits of competition policy.
I also have a pop-economics YouTube channel, Chopping Board Economics
