Anne studied the piano at the Conservatoire de Musique de Genève before going into law full-time.  She gained her undergraduate law degree from the University of Freiburg in Germany, and subsequently worked as a research and teaching fellow at the University of Jena Department of Law.  She attended the LLM programme at the University of Virginia School of Law on a Fulbright scholarship.  Anne did her professional legal training in Germany and is a fully qualified lawyer.  She gained her PhD in the area of EU antitrust law from Kent Law School, where she worked as an associate lecturer between 2009 and 2012.  Anne joined the University of Leicester and took up her current position at Leicester Law School in May 2012.  Her main research interests lie in the areas of EU and US antitrust law.  In 2015, she was a visiting fellow at the European University Institute Department of Law, Florence, where she researched and wrote a monograph on the role of economic theory in EU antitrust law.  This project was funded by a BA/Leverhulme small research grant.
