My research interests are in Applied Microeconomics, Public Economics and Finance, Political Economy, Regional Economics and Regulation. The emphasis of my research is on conflicts resolution in public choices. More specifically, I apply methods from the modern bargaining theory to study how different types of institutional bodies and agents interact and make decisions when conflicting interests are involved.
