Anush Ganesh is a lecturer in law at St. Mary's who joined the law faculty in January 2022 while finishing his final year of PhD at the University of East Anglia (UEA) to primarily teach Competition Law to LLM students at St. Mary's.
His research interests are in competition law on which he pursued his PhD at UEA (2018-2022) under the guidance of Professor Morten Hviid and Professor Michael Harker at the UEA Law School. He also holds an LLM from UEA (2017-2018) in competition law.
After graduating from O.P Jindal Global University (JGU) Law School (2012-2017), Anush came to Norwich to pursue his research interests in competition law to UEA and has been affiliated with their Centre for Competition Policy (CCP) which conducts independent research in competition law and policy.
Anush's teaching interests go beyond competition law, however, as he previously taught European Union (EU) Law and Legal Methods and Reasoning as an Associate Tutor at UEA between 2019-2021.
He has also taught a Masters level Competition Law module at Anglia Ruskin University (Jan 2022-May 2022) as a visiting part-time Associate lecturer. At St. Mary's,
Anush will be also teaching business and economic laws and insurance law in addition to the modules on competition law and EU Law.
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 dominance abuse in digital markets which need to be relooked from a competition law view point.
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.
He has presented some of his papers at competition law conferences such as the Academic Society for Competition Law (ASCOLA) 2021 and Competition Law and Economics European Network (CLEEN) 2021 and 2022 editions.
Anush also aims to expand his research to the application of competition law in matters related to development, sustainability, sports and labour.
