Teaching

During my career I’ve been lucky to have taught very different topics, covering most of the Macroeconomics and Microeconomics of an undergraduate program in Economics. Currently, though I have focused on my research expertise, that is Microeconomics, in particular, different applications of Game Theory, such as Auctions and Contract Theory. I am also very interested in Industrial Organization and Corporate Finance Theory.
