Staff Overview

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Economics and Finance at Cardiff School of Management at Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from University of London (Royal Holloway College) where I also served as a Teaching Fellow. My research interest is in Economic Theory and Game Theory with relatively more concentration on Stochastic Games. I am currently working on modelling collusion and competition among firms competing a la Bertrand in different informational settings. I am also developing a model of social coalition formation under specific social norms with infinitely interacting agents.
