I am a professor at Brunel Law School (BLS) working for the University since January 2008. Before committing myself to academia, I served as a competition lawyer at the Competition Council of Lithuania.

I am also a Divisional Lead for Private and Commercial Law. Previously, I was the Athena Swan Lead for BLS; I successfully led our department to achieve an Athena Swan Bronze Award, becoming the first non-STEMM BUL department to receive this award. I was also the Associate Dean for Equality and Diversity (CBASS) 2015-2018.

My research expertise lies in competition law, energy law, and waste law. I am the author of numerous journal articles as well as two monographs: Merger Control in Post-Communist Countries, Routledge, 2010; and Harmonisation of EU Competition Law Enforcement, Springer, 2019. My current focus is on interdisciplinary research.
