Executive Summary
My research interests broadly lie in the areas of Game Theory and Political Economy. I am presently working on the topics of Persuasion Games, Cheap Talk, Voting, Consumer Herding. As a part of my current research, I am interested in analysing the behaviour of career minded experts who operate in a secret committee, where their private recommendations may be leaked to the public. I am also interested in analysing how the presence of reputation-driven media outlets affects the welfare of the voters. My other papers involve the employment of brand ambassadors by firms in a setting of strategic herding, and the value of verifiable information presented to juries during trials. I am also interested in the area of Credence Goods with a specific focus on Health Economy.
