  • Biography

    Andrea joined the University of Glasgow School of Law in September 2014 as a Postgraduate Researcher and Ph.D. Candidate in Cultural Heritage Law for the CREATe Research Councils UK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy. Working closely with the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh, Andrea’s research considers how cultural heritage institutions within the public sector have responded to the increasing need to engage in commercialization activities during a time of economic recession. Her research examines the impact of technology on the public domain, examines the obstacles and opportunities generated by the digital realm, and it proposes recommendations for the legal, cultural, and ethical issues that continue to challenge cultural institutions.

    Andrea previously received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and worked professionally as a graphic designer for five years. In 2014, Andrea graduated from DePaul University College of Law, magna cum laude, and received a joint LL.M. degree in European Business Law, cum laude, from Radboud University in the Netherlands. Andrea’s LL.M. thesis traced the development of the Artist Resale Royalty Right in the EU and the legislative attempts in the US, focusing on recent global market data revealing the right’s impact and evaluating the interests of the three actors implicated in the debate: the commercial actor, the legal actor, and the creative actor.

    Andrea is also a registered attorney with the Illinois Bar.
