Dr. Maria Campo Comba
María Campo Comba is currently an Assistant Professor in EU Law at Erasmus School of Law, Erasmus University Rotterdam. Currently, her research focuses on the rebalancing of public and private interests debate from the EU competition law perspective.
On the one hand, she focuses on the potential of self-regulation agreements in achieving public interests and whether and to which extent EU competition law rules should allow this type of agreements. The main discussion in this regard takes place in the context of the role of competition law in achieving sustainability objectives. On the other hand, she focuses on the challenges that digital markets pose to EU competition law, especially concerning the power of Big Tech. Her research efforts are aimed towards a progressive legal thinking of competition law in accordance with reality and current societal (and market) challenges.
Previously, María conducted her PhD research on the area of private international law, also in relation with the public/private challenge. Her PhD research focused on the law applicable to cross-border contracts involving weaker contracting parties (e.g. consumers, employees), and balancing the protection of those parties’ interests and higher interests involved.
