Tony’s research interest covers the impact of technology on the legal profession and society, with a focus on artificial intelligence, remote courts, drones and web3.

Tony is most passionate about the intersection between law and crypto, including how smart legal contracts will change legal practice; how the new financial system (Bitcoin, DeFi and CBDCs) will revolutionise money; how the future of governance will be shaped by decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs); and how the metaverse will increasingly meld as one with society.

Tony is also a part-time trader of financial markets (primarily cryptocurrencies) with certificates in the Wyckoff methodology of technical analysis.
