Claudio J. Tessone
University of Zurich
Head of the BDLT group at the University of Zurich (UZH) and Chairman of the UZH Blockchain Center. He studies blockchains as a paradigm of socio-economic complexity: linking microscopic agent behaviour, incentives (placed on purpose or inadvertently) and interactions with their emergent properties. The main pillars of his research include: consensus analysis and modelling (looking at the quality of consensus achieved in real-world situations, the effects of incentives and inequality effects of reward distribution), cryptoeconomics, large-scale blockchain analytics and forensics.
