PhD (Economics): University of Zurich (Switzerland), 2010

I am not teaching in Fall 2012.
In Spring 2013, I am teaching Topics in Industrial Organization (MECO 6360; crosslisted with MECO 6340) for PhD students [Syllabus from Spring 2012] and two sections of Business Economics (MECO 6303) for Master students.
Message to UTD students: I am available as sponsor for independent study projects on contracts, antitrust, intellectual property, industry standardization, regulation (of product or financial markets), and the intersection of product market competition and corporate governance/finance.
My research interests lie in contract theory and industrial organization with applications in law and economics (contract law, antitrust, intellectual property) and finance.
I am co-organizing the Finance Reading Group. The topic in Fall 2012 is Empirics of Asymmetric Information.
Patent Hold Up and Antitrust: How a Well-Intentioned Rule Could Retard Innovation, Journal of Industrial Economics, 60(2), 2012 (June), pp 249-273 (with Luke Froeb and Greg Werden).
