Speaker Profile:

This research seminar consists of two types of content. One type of content is to introduce the basic building blocks for economic analytical modeling. We will discuss how to build economic models and write papers in general, the basic concepts of game theory, and commonly used framework for economic modeling. The other type of content is to introduce the frontier research in the field of Management Information Systems. Topics discussed in class will include user-generated content and social media, online platform and business model, search and pricing, online advertising and sponsored search, and auctions and mechanism design. Together, we will cover both the standard models used in industrial organization and information systems and the modeling and solution process. One unique feature of this research seminar is that we will discuss in detail the whole process of publication of the main papers covered, from research ideas generation, model building, paper positioning, writing the first draft, to handling review team’s comments.
