Christopher P. Adams, Ph.D.

I am an economist at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.  At the FTC I work on antitrust cases including mergers and acquisitions and anticompetitive practices.  As well as case work, I organize the FTC Microeconomics Conference.
I also conduct academic-style research that has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Marketing Science, Quantitative Marketing and Economics, Economics Letters, Health Affairs, Health Economics and the International Journal of Industrial Organization.  My research is in econometrics, empirical industrial organization and includes work on Internet auctions, pharmaceutical R&D, randomized control trials and incentive contracts.
