Alexandra Andhov is Associate Professor in Corporate Law and Law and Technology. Dr. Andhov is a founder and director of the Copenhagen Legal Tech Lab at the University of Copenhagen.
In 2022, Dr. Andhov was awarded a grant from Inge Lehmann's Research Talent Program for her 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.
Dr. Andhov's research focuses on questions of corporate law, corporate governance, capital markets, law and technology from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective.

On these topics, she has published articles in numerous European and US law journals and reviews, including European Business Law Review, Cornell International Law Journal, Queen Mary Law Journal, Business & Society, and others.

In 2023, she is finalizing her manuscripts with Hart Publishing on EU financial regulation and new technological developments and an edited volume on Fallacies of Corporate and Finance Law, which she co-edits with Professors Saule Omarova and Claire Hill.
