I am interested in understanding several issues in Industrial Organization, specifically issues related to R&D and Intellectual Property (IP). At present I am studying how firms make strategic R&D and patenting decisions taking into account the nature of the industry. I have also examined how IP and knowledge spillover comes into play when firms are making strategic decisions about their product characteristics. Another aspect of my research program is to understand what kind of IP regime would encourage innovation versus strategic patenting.
