Key Research Interests: 

EU competition policy; mergers; cartels; small firms

Research Interests

The main strand of my research focuses on developments in competition policy and its role in moulding firms’ strategies and in determining the competitiveness of the economy. I am particularly interested in the EU merger control regime including why EU and US merger decisions may diverge despite the recent moves to cooperate in merger control; how effects on innovation are assessed in the two regimes, and what the effects are on firms' restructuring. I am also interested in the managerial implications of the recent EU crackdown on cartels. A second research strand investigates the innovative capacity of smaller firms, the problems they face in innovation and the role of outside assistance, especially in a regional context. I am founder editor (1994+) of theInternational Journal of the Economics of Business which presents original peer reviewed research in Economics that is applicable to business and related public policy issues.
