  • Sharing economy
  • Technology and innovation management; theory and empirical research on innovation and knowledge creation
  • Economic aspects of environmental policy, in particular emissions trading systems
  • Mobile radio licenses and telecommunications markets; internet peering negotiations


  • Empirical research, data analysis
  • Mathematical modelling, game and auction theory
  • Economic laboratory experiments
  • Algorithms and computer simulations
