Gautam Bose

Associate Professor

My main interests in microeconomics include theoretical models of intermediation, search and matching markets, and the theory of contests. As a development economist I study corruption in developing economies. I have a strong interest in labour markets and contracts, as well as women's labour market participation. I also work in behavioural economics, exploring the formation and impact of social norms.

Research Interests:

  • Development economics
  • Microeconomic theory
  • Labour economics
