Research

Our research and teaching area can best be described as applied microeconomic theory. We primarily investigate issues in competition taking different perspectives, both methodologically and with regard to the area of application.

In the context of the SFB 901 “On-The-Fly Computing,” we explore the market for composed services from an economic perspective. More specifically, we examine institutional questions of how to organize the market optimally to achieve a pre-defined goal, but also issues in competition policy of how to shape the functioning of the market in order to promote competition. In addition, we research the economic evolutionary foundations of competition in these two-sided markets.

In a second project area, we study economic issues in the provision of health care. Firstly, we scrutinize when and under what conditions introducing or intensifying competition can help to ensure a socially optimal quality level of supply. Secondly, we examine how quality-based reimbursement schemes affect the internal contract and incentive structures in hospitals and in the health care sector more generally.
