Dr. Swanson’s research primarily focuses on the effects of information and incentives on both the supply side and the demand side of health care markets.
Dr. Prokhorov’s research interests include theoretical and applied econometrics, with applications in business analytics, finance, risk management, labour and health economics, demography and other fields.
Dr. Elena Krasnokutskaya research includes on the empirical analysis of imperfectly competitive markets. Most of my work focuses on auction markets and deals with evaluating effectiveness of specific auction mechanisms in promoting auction participation, maximizing the auctioneer’s revenue, or matching seller to buyer on the basis of the seller’s characteristics (e.g. quality or location) and the buyer’s willingness to pay for these characteristics. I have also made methodological contributions to the literature analyzing the estimation of auction models in the presence of unobserved object characteristics. In non-auction part of my research I analyze firms’ product choices and subsequent pricing decisions in the environment with strategic interactions among firms and government regulation of product properties. In one study, I use this framework to assess the impact of government regulation on the portfolios offered by pension funds, their prices, social welfare, and on government liabilities in the Chilean privatized pension system.

His research lies at the intersection of macroeconomics, macro-labor, international macro, and monetary economics. His work focuses on the study of labor market dynamics, financial frictions, and business cycles in developing and emerging economies, the importance of sectoral heterogeneity for the behavior of short-run economic activity, and the role of macro policy in mitigating the impact of adverse shocks to the economy.
Research interests in the intersection of finance and macroeconomics, with an emphasis on normative questions. He has recently studied the optimal determination of transaction taxes, the optimal design of bankruptcy policies, the effects of bank size on financial fragility, the ideal design of joint liability arrangements among sovereigns and the welfare losses associated with fire-sale externalities.
Research includes behavioral economics and household finance, with a focus on low-income households. In a series of papers, Jeremy has found that psychologically-informed models of intertemporal choice help to explain patterns of simultaneous mid-life wealth accumulation and credit card borrowing in the United States. One line of ongoing work investigates why people borrow on payday loans and measures the individual-level effects of access to payday loan credit.
