Economics Welcomes New Associate Professor
Eugenio Miravete, Ph.D. Northwestern
Posted: August 14, 2006
We pleased to announce that Dr. Eugenio Miravete has joined the Department of Economics. Dr. Miravetes area of research is Empirical Industrial Organization with an edge on price discrimination. Most of his work makes use of theoretical models of nonlinear pricing to develop structural estimation methods that account for asymmetry of information and strategic interactions that firms encounter when they design their tariff options. He has applied most of my research to study telecommunications pricing, both under monopoly and competition. Dr. Miravete has also worked on the empirical measurement of complementarities and studied how learning-by-doing may influence optimal trade tariffs when governments cannot commit to future trade liberalization.
Dr. Miravete has taught Industrial Organization (at various levels), intermediate Microeconomics, principles of Economics, as well as Microeconomics for MBAs. In the coming year, he will teach Industrial Organization as well as Graduate Seminars in Economics.
Dr. Miravete is originally from M¡laga, Spain. He holds an undergraduate degree at Universidad de Valencia, also in Spain; and a Ph.D. in Economics at Northwestern University. Prior to joining the University of Texas at Austin he held an Assistant Professor position at the University of Pennsylvania. He also taught at Universidad de Valencia, INSEAD, France, and New York University.
