I am an Academic Reader 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 the Athena SWAN Lead for BLS and the Aurora Champion for BUL. I have recently 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.
I am also a Co-I of two Horizon 2020 projects: i) ETEKINA (heat pipE TECHnologies for INdustrial Applications, further information on: https://www.etekina.eu) 2017-2021; and InComEss (Innovative Polymer-Based Composite Systems for High-Efficient Energy Scavenging and Storage) 2020-2024.
