My research focuses on contests using game theory, and is better known as rent-seeking models or tournaments. I apply this to marketing problems such as sales contests where asymmetries are present between employees and it is dependent upon the manager to modify the structure of the contest such that her goals will be achieved and simultaneously satisfy the goals of the employees. I currently have three working papers addressing this topic and can be found at SSRN and below.
