My research falls mainly within the area of industrial organization. With coauthors, I have examined pricing and other strategic choices by firms in gasoline retailing, shopping centers, and liquor retailing.My current research is focused on restructured electricity markets, including the role of forward markets on wholesale market outcomes, the effects of carbon pricing, the effect of regulated retail options on competitive retailers, and the integration of renewables.
