My research focuses on the intersection between competition law and complexity science. In particular, I'm working to create new conceptual and empirical lenses through which we can view economic markets in a wider social and societal context. The ultimate aim is to help build ways to govern market economies which are prudent and wise.

Zero price, Zero Competition: How Marketization Fixes Anticompetitive Tying in Monetized Markets (2021, pre-print) - Todd Davies & Zlatina Georgieva

This paper outlines why monetized (zero-priced) markets often tip towards a single dominant firm, and outlines a novel regulatory remedy by which such market failures can be prevented. This paper features in the 2021 conference for the Academic Society of Competition Law.

Winner of the Concurrences 2020 Best Student Paper award. This paper is essentially an earlier version of the paper above, and describes a structural approach to understanding market power online.
