Tätigkeiten

Interests

    My research addresses current business and regulatory policy issues in the Internet economy and telecommunications markets. In this context, I focus on prices and tariffs of services, the analysis of new business models and their acceptance, as well as the regulation and governance in network industries. These aspects contribute significantly to ensuring innovation, investment and consequently company's success in these markets. Therefore I consider the views of firms, consumers, and regulatory organizations.

    Methodologies

    In my research I use both theoretical approaches of game theory, industrial organization and OR, as well as empirical methods of experimental economics. In addition, I use survey-based methods, which I combine with psychometric measurements.

    Work in Progress

  • Data Caps and Two-Sided Pricing: A Theoretical Approach to Volume Based Business Models of Internet Service Providers.
    Development of a theoretical model to analyze future business models of Internet service providers that include speed caps for Internet access in combination with prices for content- and service providers.
  • Understanding the Value of Internet Access: A Conjoint based Analysis of Data Tariffs in Next Generation Networks.
    Development of an empirical study to estimate the willingness-to-pay of consumers for so-called „Managed Services“ in relation to other criteria of Internet access services.
  • Interconnection Strategies for Internet Service Providers.
    The focus of this research project are business models and strategies for interconnection agreements between Internet service providers. Different forms of Peering and Transit agreements between Internet service providers are empirically tested with economic laboratory experiments.
