My research is in the area of empirical industrial organization. In particular, I study how structural estimation can guide policy decisions in developing and underdeveloped countries. I am also interested in the empirical study of auctions. My current work focuses on various policies like price control policy and compulsory licensing in the context of the Indian pharmaceutical industry. With careful estimation of structural models and taking into account consumer as well as firm incentives, I show that the Government’s current policies are suboptimal for maximizing consumer welfare, and also propose policies to improve welfare. I have used large panel datasets and combined these with datasets from various other sources to estimate complex models using econometric techniques that include partial identification, set estimation and inference.
