This research area focuses on microeconomic research that typically uses a theoretical approach to understand our world. The strength of this group lies in their broad range of applications across areas such as Industrial Organization, Political Economy, Public, Behavioral, Information Economics, and Labor.
This group uses the tools of game theory and decision theory to formally derive novel insights and rigorous predictions in microeconomic applications of substantive interest. The group also runs the SPEAR Lab to test some of our theories through laboratory experiments.
Find upcoming seminars with MSU Department of Economics and guest faculty discussing current research in micro theory, industrial organization, and behavioral economics.
