Current Research Programs

Effect of Classification Errors on Screening Equilibria
In this work we look at the effect of errors in classification of a consumer on screening equilibria. Whether the firm knows about the possibility of error makes a difference in the contracts and outcomes.
Urgent Care Ownership and Location
We are examining the location and pricing of urgent care centers vis a vis emergency department locations. The key issue is that the while an ED is a full service acute care facility, the UC is not. The patients choose with error. We examine the effect of error on the economic equilibrium.
