Microeconomics is about modeling the agents’ behavior. I firmly believe that models can help us to understand better human behavior, which has extensive applications in the real world. In particular, I focus on the interaction of agents facing information asymmetries, mostly Moral Hazard. I focus my research on finding new economic models that allow us to understand the misbehavior of some agents better. Currently, I am working on moral hazard and endogenous matching.
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.
