Gonzalo’s interests include microeconomic theory, game theory, information economics, and corporate finance. He is particularly interested in dynamic incentives. Specifically, he studies how strategic behavior can be affected by the presence of asymmetric and incomplete information, and by the possibility of learning about the relevant economic environment. In studying these environments, he combines elements from game theory, dynamic optimization, and filtering theory.
