Minyan's research applies statistical and econometric analysis to the understanding of key competition and regulation issues, in particular the impact of regulation on the operation/competition in relevant markets, especially in the banking and energy sector. Minyan has also conducted research relating to the understanding of consumers' search and switching behaviour in regulated sectors and the implications on regulation. Minyan is also interested in the empirical assessment of firm efficiency and performance applying techniques such as Data Envelopment Analysis and Stochastic Frontier Analysis.

Before joining the University of Reading in January 2017, Minyan was an assistant professor in Industrial Economics at University of Nottingham and a post-doc research associate at Centre for Competition Policy (CCP, University of East Anglia). Minyan remains to be an associate member at CCP.
