Microeconomics is about modeling the agents’ behavior. I strongly believe that models can help us to understand better human behavior, which has immense applications in the real world. I am interested in particular in the interaction of agents facing information asymmetries, in particular, Moral Hazard. I focus my research on finding new economic models that allow us to better understand the misbehavior of some Agents. In particular, I am working on finding new ways of understanding fraud.
I am also very interested in developing solutions for real-life problems using the Microeconomic Theory. Is in this part for example that I studied optimal bidding, and developed software to assist in the analysis of how the auction environment affects the bidding strategy adopted by the bidders. I am convinced that incorporating the economic techniques on modeling situations into daily basis applications can make a big difference in the performance of individuals, institutions, and companies.
