My Home

          I am specializing in health care management. My research interests mainly concern how information problems affect individual behavior and the organization of firms and markets, especially the structure of those industries related to health care. My current research focuses on three lines concerning information and reputation. The first and main line of research investigates how information affect operations in the nursing home industry. In the second line of research, I study the impact of scientific misconducts on the reputation of individual researchers, and on innovation in the healthcare sectors. The third line concerns how information technology affects information dissemination and hence changes the behavior of patients and providers.
