    Current Research Projects

    • PROFITGaps and Opportunities in the Corporate Governance of Big Tech Companies

    In 2022, Dr. Andhov’s pioneering efforts were recognized with a prestigious grant from Inge Lehmann's Research Talent Program for her groundbreaking PROFIT Project. The Project takes on analyzing and re-designing the corporate governance of Big Tech companies like Facebook, Google, and Apple. Big Techs are among the most powerful agents in the world today, which use our data and utilize #AI to design products that predict our behaviour and push us toward their desired goals. This project aims to design improved corporate governance for Big Tech. The project is to run from 2023-2025.

    • Fallacies of Corporate and Financial Law

      Dr. Andhov is also collaborating as a co-editor with a team of world-renowned scholars on corporate and finance law. After thorough discussions and reviews in Copenhagen and New York City, they're working on a book that aims to shed light on some mistaken axioms that have shaped the two disciplines for decades. Hart Publishing will be releasing their joint effort in early 2024.
