My main field of research is Law & Economics, but I also work occasionally on topics in Industrial Organization or Public Economics. My work includes research questions such as:

  • How do car drivers react to nonlinear speeding sanctions?
  • Can we prevent the next financial crises by regulating bankers’ compensation?
  • When selling something on ebay, should I choose an auction or sell it at a fixed price?

I am also interested in supervising Ph.D. theses in these fields of research, especially on the following topics:

  • Litigation and settlement
  • Punishment and deterrence
  • Causes and effects of corruption
  • Competition policy, especially on abuse of a dominant position
  • Health Economics
  • Economics of Education

Teaching Responsibilities

I have taught in the areas of Managerial Economics, Industrial Organization, Institutional Economics and Microeconomic Theory.
