research overview

  • My research interests are in the fields of Econometrics and Applied Microeconomics. My current research emphasizes estimation methods in evaluating the extent of strategic, social and spatial interactions among economic agents. Topical applications include efficient estimation of spatial autoregressive models, specification and estimation of social interaction models with network structures, and structural estimation of experimental games and empirical auctions.
