…about legal and economic phenomena

Welcome, and thanks for visiting.

My website is about my research. This looks at how we do, talk about, and think about legal and economic aspects of interactions.

Have a look at the visual aspects of my work under Visualising.

Thanks, internet. Elon Musk, king of many things but also of the art form that is The Meme, was widely […]
