Dr Oles Andriychuk

Senior Lecturer


Personal statement

I joined Strathclyde in January 2019 as a Senior Lecturer in Law. Before taking this position, I held a lectureship and then senior lectureship at the University of Stirling (2012-2018) and a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Centre for Competition Policy, UEA (2009-2012).

I have completed a monograph on the philosophical foundations of European Competition Law and Policy (Edward Elgar, August 2017) and published widely on various aspects of Competition Law, Legal Philosophy (Jurisprudence) and Law and Technology (more 20+ outputs).

In my current research I address several themes in Telecommunications Law, Competition Law and the Digital Economy, Internet Law and Intellectual Property Law and Media Law. My work focuses on such phenomena as big data and the power of algorithms, the regulation of social networks and new media, post-truth and post-postmodern law, antitrust and disruptive technologies, electronic communications, platform convergence and the idea of net neutrality, and various aspects of sports broadcasting rights.
