I am Professor (since 2003) and Vice-Dean for Research and Talent (since 2011) at the School of Business and Social Sciences (Aarhus BSS), Aarhus University. I was previously Head of the School of Economics and Management (2006 - 2011).

I received my PhD from CORE, Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, 1991, and hold an MA (Econ) from Warwick University, UK, 1986. I have studied at Aarhus University (1981-85), Warwick University (1985-86), CORE (1987-89), and UCLA (1989-90).

My primary research and teaching interests are in Economics of Information, Contract Theory, Auction Theory, Game Theory, Industrial Organization, Business Strategy, Antitrust and Business Regulation. Recent work includes analyses of pre-auction offers and buy-out offers in auctions, equilibria in multi-sender signaling games and the role of market transparency in repeated oligopoly.

I have been a member of the Danish Social Science Research Council (2006 - 2010) and am presently a member of the Danish Rail Regulatory Authority (since 2010).
