Matthias Finger was a Professor of Management of Network Industries and is since July 2020 an Emeritus Professor at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland.

His expertise lies in the area of network industries (energy, transport, communications and water), in particular their de-regulation, their re-regulation and their governance more generally. As of recently, he also looks at digital platforms as the “new infrastructures”. He has also developed a new focus on urban infrastructures as complex and dynamic socio-technical systems.
