Dr Dionysia Katelouzou is a Senior Lecturer in Corporate Law, having joined The Dickson Poon School of Law in July 2013. She was previously a Lecturer in Law at the University of East Anglia.

Research interests

Dr Katelouzou’s research focuses on comparative and transnational corporate law and corporate governance, financial market regulation and law and finance, generally using an interdisciplinary approach. One strand of her research deals with shareholder activism, especially the style activist hedge funds engage in, and its interplays with corporate law in a comparative and transnational legal context. Her work is distinctive in its empirical orientation and combines socio-legal analysis with empirical quantitative methods.

Her current research looks at the role of institutional investors in producing corporate governance norms or pressuring rule change by legislature on a domestic, regional, international and transnational scale, and she is leading the ECGI-supported Global Shareholder Stewardship research group, consisting of more than 100 members across 24 countries around the world.
