Howard P. Marvel Scholar Assistant Professor of Economics
I am the Howard P. Marvel Scholar Assistant Professor of Economics at The Ohio State University.
I received my PhD from the Economics' Department of Northwestern University. I joined the Economics' Department at Ohio State in 2012. I was born in Mendoza, Argentina.
My research fields are industrial organization and applied microeconomics.
My research focuses on investigating the efficiency of market and non-market institutions, demand estimation, and their implications for price competition and market power. It is centered on models of strategic interactions such as auctions, networks, and discrete choice models.
I teach IO both at the undergraduate and Ph.D. levels.
