My research consists mainly of applied theoretical work in the fields of industrial organization and organizational economics. In industrial organization, I have looked at issues related to network externalities, advertising, and how firms can exploit consumer social image concerns. The topics I have worked on in organizational economics include transparency, team incentives, relational contracting, and hold-up problems in investment.
