Personal profile


My research is in applied microeconomics and contract theory in particular. My most recent work has combined an interest in the foundational work on the make-vs-buy dichotomy, and an interest in out-sourcing of public-sector activities with a focus on the incentives created by different institutional arrangements.


My teaching has spanned most areas of microeconomics, from the introductory level to the PhD level. I have also taught intermediate-level courses in industrial organization and public economics. I have advised theses at the Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level on a broad range of topics in applied microeconomics.


I have written policy reports and consulting reports on topics in competition policy, public-sector organization and public-sector outsourcing in particular. I have also written a number of op-ed pieces on topical issues in economics, and been an expert witness in litigation of competition law.
