His PhD thesis, entitled ‘EU Cartel Enforcement and its Compliance with Procedural Rights: How can its Effectiveness be Enhanced?’ (UEA Law School, 2011-2015), considered whether the European Commission's cartel enforcement policies comply with procedural rights and the rights enshrined within the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). In particular, it assessed the Commission's fining policy, leniency policy and direct settlement policy against the ECHR, procedural rights and the relevant jurisprudence. Further to this, the research considered whether the Commission applies its policies equally to undertakings in practice and how its effectiveness can be enhanced.
