Research Summary

I work in the area of auction theory especially on problems related to entry license auctions followed by aftermarket competitions . We study the interplay between bidding and market competition to understand the bidding behaviour in the licensing stage and the output decision in the market. Application of this include privatisation of any industry owned by government. Our main objective is to find the optimal number of entry licenses, while considering the trade off among consumer surplus, producer surplus, and revenue of the government.
