Fields of Research: Industrial Organization, Applied Microeconomics, Agricultural Economics

My primary field of research is Industrial Organization, with research interests in Intellectual Property Rights, innovation, and problems related to agricultural markets. My research is concerned with the limits of patent protection, and focuses on the strategic behavior of innovators. I also have investigated the impact of regulation on research investments, the economic implications of litigation, and the welfare implications of changes in the patent system.
