Research Overview

Andrea's research focuses on competition law; an area of law which is vitally important to the delivery of social outcomes, especially in complex mixed- and quasi-markets. It can also deliver or interfere with aspects of social justice (e.g. in the context of the gig economy). Furthermore, it is deeply related to a country’s wider historical, political and socio-economic background. These are the areas which Andrea focuses on. Her work is located at the fringes of competition law and employs interdisciplinary socio-legal methods. More specifically, her research straddles three main interests; (1) application of EU (competition) law to universities (watch an interview on the topic), (2) research on topics where competition law overlaps with other areas of law and policy more generally (beyond universities) and (3) competition law in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and comparative competition law (current main research focus).
