My research fields are in public economics and industrial organization. I study how public policies affect the incentives of individuals and firms, and how they influence aggregate efficiency and distributional equality. My research interests can be grouped into two topical areas: human capital formation and economics of education, and market power in private sectors as well as mixed markets. I have published papers in highly ranked economics journals such as Journal of Public Economics, American Economic Journal: Microeconomics, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Journal of Development Economics, Journal of Industrial Economics, and Economic Theory.
My teaching areas include public economics and mathematical economics.
