Dr Nedeva has research interests in investment law, arbitration (international commercial and investment treaty), energy law (oil and gas), private and public international law. She has published in the above fields; and is open to collaborative research in these areas.

She obtained the Vice-Chancellor’s Research Studentship (full funding, merit-based) to complete her PhD in oil and gas investment contracts and arbitration at the University of Exeter.
