Welcome to Erik Hovenkamp's academic website

Beginning in fall 2017, I will be the Qualcomm Postdoctoral Fellow in Private Law and Intellectual Property at Harvard Law School.  I will also be a Visiting Lecturer at Boston University School of Law.  Since 2016, I have been a Kauffman Dissertation Fellow in the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

I hold a Ph.D. in economics from Northwestern University, and a J.D. from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.  My research focuses on patents, antitrust, innovation, and the economic analysis of law.  

On this website, you can access my research, curriculum vitae, and biographical information.
