Business and Public Policy
My main fields of interest are the economics of incentives, industrial organization and microeconomics.
My research aspires to advance our understanding of the roles played by two central institutions
---firms and contractual agreements---and how these institutions facilitate the creation of value.
Within this broader framework, I have focused on a firm's reputation as a valuable, tradeable asset; the
effects of contract design and organizational form on firm behavior with applications to outsourcing and
privatization; public and private sector procurement and award mechanisms; and the determinants of trust.
