He has addressed competitions issues for different private companies including notably, Buena Vista Home Entertainment, Deutsche Bahn, and France Telecom. His expertise is focused on applied industrial organization—utilizing econometric methods to evaluate firms’ conduct, designing business models, and testing theoretical predictions on market equilibrium, contractual arrangements, and regulatory schemes. Much of his work has been devoted to analysis of network and transport service industries including rail, air, energy, telecommunications, banking, and information technologies.
