His research to date focuses on Social and Economic Networks and Financial Economics. The work he does in Social and Economic Networks is an attempt to put the social man (as we know it) in economics. His work in Financial Economics aspires to provide microeconomic foundations to the policy debates on financial crises and stability, and on comparative advantages of different economic systems. He builds theoretical models to better understand these issues and develop novel statistical methods for prediction and estimation.
