Aktuel forskning

My current research focuses on evaluating the implications of economic incentives and regulations of market failure (externality and asymmetric information) in agro-environment (e.g., antimicrobial resistance) and agricultural commodity markets. I also work on designing incentives for addressing issues of market failure in commons (e.g., antimicrobial resistance and climate change). I am affiliated with CeBIL, where my role primarily focuses on evaluating impacts of economic incentives and policies for intellectual property rights in biomedical innovation.
