Fall 2014:  no classes


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. [Currently no scheduled program]
