After studying media economics, Annika Stöhr completed her doctorate on "Economic Evaluation and Reform Implications of German Competition Policy” in 2022. Her research operates at the intersection of competition economics, competition law, and competition policy, on the premise that innovation is both a facilitator as well as a goal of functioning competition (regulation). One focus is on merger control and extra-economic effects and factors, so-called public interests, which potentially (should) have an influence on competition regulation.
Her research benefits from the additional working experience at the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action of more than two years. Since April 2023, she has been working at the Chair for Economic Theory at the Ilmenau University of Technology as a post-doctoral researcher.
