RESEARCH & TEACHING INTERESTS

  • Information Economics
  • Dynamic Games
  • Banking and Finance

 

My current research interests are primarily directed towards developing and analyzing theoretical models of dynamic R&D processes. This includes the analysis of experimentation strategies and learning process in R&D competition. The research draws on methodologies of game theory and statistics. My research also combines game theoretic methods with cell biological and molecular biological approaches to investigate group and population formation processes in the presence of heterogeneous externalities.
