About Professor Bock
Using empirical techniques and theoretical models, Prof. Bock studies the legal, organizational, and behavioral considerations that underlie the various dysfunctional, inefficient, or otherwise socially-undesirable aspects of patent litigation. His research often takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on lessons from behavioral economics, cognitive psychology, and management science.
