Research Themes

My research interests are broadly focussed on the interaction between technology, public policy and industry as well as technical cooperation among competing firms. Within this, I focus on specific issues in the telecommunications industry, such as spectrum policy, internet telephony, and broadband access. The research methodologies that my recent Ph.D. students have used include agent based computational economics, cost modelling, real options analysis, and game theory.

In the past several years, the principal area of my work has been in dynamic spectrum access (DSA). I have focussed on the technology and economics of market-based secondary use as well as on secondary spectrum markets (as opposed to auctions, which are the primary spectrum markets).
