Ross Buckley is the KPMG Law - King & Wood Mallesons Professor of Disruptive Innovation, and a Scientia Professor, at UNSW Sydney. His research focus is FinTech, RegTech and blockchain. His FinTech and RegTech research has been downloaded more frequently from the Social Science Research Network than that of any of the other 400,000 social scientists who post their work on SSRN in the world. His joint world-first research has (a) developed the generally accepted timeline for the evolution of FinTech; (b) reconceptualised the true potential of RegTech; (c) undertaken the first comprehensive analysis of the liabilities of blockchain; and (d) analysed the rise and regulation of initial coin offerings, in a forthcoming article in the Harvard Journal of International Law. He chairs the Digital Finance Advisory Committee of the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, and has consulted to government departments in ten countries, including Australia and the US. He consults regularly to the Asian Development Bank, and has twice been a Fulbright Scholar, at Yale and Duke.
