Research Interests

My main area of research concerns the development of models of choice at the level of the individual. These choice sets can be large and represent a number of theoretical and computational challenges.

Currently I am exploring the use of nonparametric methods which can represent heterogeneous preferences and are tractable. Applications exist in the demand for differentiated products including energy.
