My research focuses on digital platform policies and the impact of policy changes on all sides of the platform. Some of my ongoing research include:
- Tackling excessive screening on online sharing platforms such as Airbnb.
- Tackling “over-seeking” sensitive user information on mobile platforms such as Android.
- Enabling interactions between content providers and viewers on Smart TVs.
- Studying the economic impact of institutional forms such as Seed Accelerators.
Research Focus: Platform Self Regulation, Information Privacy, Mechanism Designs, Asymmetric Information
Methodology: Econometrics, ML (Deep Learning), Textual Analysis, Field Experiments
My dissertation research investigates the impact of platform policy changes that reduce the imbalance between different sides of an online platform. My dissertation has gained immensely from my interactions with my committee which includes Prof. Siva Viswanathan (chair of the committee), Prof. Peng Huang, Prof. Rajshree Agarwal, Prof. Gordon Gao and Prof. Anna Alberini.
