Anush's main research interest is in competition law. His work has so far covered critical analysis of competition policy in digital markets with perspectives from the EU, US, UK, and India which has formed the base of his research.
He has also covered pricing practices (predatory pricing, price discrimination, excessive pricing) by platform firms in digital markets. His research covers broader areas related to abuse of dominance in digital markets. Anush also aims to expand his research to the application of competition law in matters related to development, sustainability, and sports.
His expertise within competition law is in abuse of dominance (mainly from an Article 102 TFEU context) but has researched agreements and mergers related topics as well and aims to expand his research to the other two competition law pillars in the future.
During his PhD he has written papers on:
- the application of competition law to zero-price online platforms
- the assessment of predatory pricing in two-sided platform markets
- the law and economics of price personalization
- effective remedies in digital market abuse of dominance cases.
