He is the recipient of numerous academic scholarships and awards, including the Emile Girardeau prize of the French Academy of Social Sciences (Académie des Sciences Morales et Politiques), for his book, published in 2007, on the Transformation of competition law by economic analysis of law (Bruylant/Sakkoulas, XIX+1698 pp). He has also published widely in European law and competition law in the Common Market Law Review, the Journal of Competition Law and Economics, the Tulane Journal of International and Comparative law, the Revue Trimestrielle de droit européen.
His primary research interest lies in comparative (EU, UK, French, US) and international antitrust, European Union law (internal market, external relations), comparative administrative and regulatory law, law and economics, economic sociology. His current work focuses on the contribution of new institutional economics to competition law, innovation policy and the law (competition law, IP rights), the law and economics of litigation in competition law, the comparative law and economics of cost-benefit analysis/impact assessment. At NYU, he will be working on a project exploring issues of economic evidence and expertise in the courts as well as completing a book on Competition Law Remedies in Europe (forthcoming Hart Pub, Oxford, 2009). He will be also leading a project on “trust/distrust and economic integration” (funded by the Modern Law Review), which explores the importance of the concept of trust (in law, economics and sociology) in explaining the relatively important harmonization of regulatory standards in some sectors of trade in services and the lack of harmonisation or resistance of harmonisation in other economic sectors.
