Welcome to my Website!

I am a Francisco Gómez-Martínez, Postdoctoral Fellow at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. I obtained my PhD at University of Amsterdam (December 2016). I also hold a Mphil in Economics from Tinbergen Institute (2013) and a M.Sc. in Economics (Research) from the London School of Economics and Political Science (2011)

My research focuses on the use of laboratory experiments to study issues in Industrial Organization. In particular, I am interested in :

      • Collusion and Cartels
      • Mergers
      • Antitrust
      • Auctions

I am on the job market this year. My job market paper is:

Partial Cartels and Mergers with Heterogeneous Firms: Experimental Evidence

In this paper, I study both theoretically and experimentally the formation and behavior of partial cartels. In addition, I illustrate how merger simulations in the lab can be seen as a useful tool for competition authorities to back up merger decisions.

I will be available for interviews at:

  • SAEe in Barcelona (December 14-16)
  • RES Ph.D. meetings in London (December 19-20)
  • AEA/ASSA meetings in Philadelphia (January 5-7)
