Research interests

My research interests are mainly in the applications of dynamic, stochastic, and game theoretic methods to areas in (micro-) economics and (corporate) finance. For example, I have published papers on investment under uncertainty, mergers and acquisitions, and preemption and attrition in dynamic markets. I also have an interest in developing models in which the indefinite future can explicitly be taken into account.
