I am an economist with the US Department of Justice Antitrust Division. During the 2016/17 academic year, I will be visiting Harvard Law School as the Victor Kramer Fellow.
My research interests include auction and bargaining theory, price dispersion and forward contracting. Below are links to some recent papers.*

Work in progress:
